There are no minimum requirements for most digital communication devices other than the operating system because a network card does not monopolize processor cycles, have access to RAM, or large drive space requirements beyond that of the driver. If the board has the ports to run the card, it has the ability to support the card with a driver. Some specialized cards and video cards as well do have minimum requirements, but only because of power consumption, the heat they produce, and the fact they communicate directly with the processor at much faster speeds. I/O devices don't have to be nearly that fast since the wireless signal and or copper connection, not architecture, are the limiting factors in the speeds you can operate.

Hi there... Iogear Bluetooth micro adapter 2.1 for USB port, software installed... After inserting the adapter, laptop freezes.


What is the operating system of your computer? Can you tell me the exact model number of your Bluetooth Adapter (it usually starts with GBU)?

Check the link below, and see the system requirements:

http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/

You need to check also the system type of your computer (32 or 64-bit OS). Some IOGEAR devices could only support 32-bit OS. If you are running 64-bit OS, that could cause the problem.

Try to uninstall the Bluetooth driver. Reboot the computer, then reload the installation disk that came with it. Once the hardware wizard ask you to plug the device it, just continue the installation, BUT DO NOT plug the device.

After the installation is done, reboot the computer again, the PLUG the device in WHILE the computer is shutting down. Once the computer comes back up, then it should install the other necessary driver. And that should work.

Good luck!

It's as if the card isn't even trying to connect right now. It closes with the error report message saying send or don't send but it doesn't say why it won't work.


Since you did not say what operating system you are using it makes it difficult to pinpoint your help.

Let us assume you are using Windoze.

This is a typical windows problem with any hardware. Sometimes the fault lies in your operating system, sometimes the fault lies in your software drivers.

The first thing you need to do is uninstall the hardware and uninstall the drivers. Then restart your computer. Then turn off your computer and reinstall the hardware and the drivers. This usually solves the problem.

If it does not solve the problem,
1. look for updated drivers for your hardware and install the updated drivers.
2. Make sure your windows OS is updated with all high priority updates.
3. Try hardware on another computer to make sure hardware is working properly.

Need to know where I can get driver download.


Possible causes:
1)The Operating System on the computer might not support the Plug & Play feature or need latest system updates.
2)The USB port or PCI slot on the computer might be faulty.
3)Extension cable (if being used) that connects the USB adapter and the computer might be faulty.
4)There is no driver support for the Operating system.
Symptoms:
1)LED will not light up on the adapter.
2)Found New Hardware Wizard does not come up.
Resolutions:
1) Make sure you meet the minimum system requirements for the adapter and have the latest updates on the computer.
2)Use the latest driver for the adapter. Latest drivers link is mentioned below.
3)Try a different USB port or PCI slot on the computer.
4)Try another device and check if it gets detected.
5)Try to connect the adapter directly to the computer without using an extension cable.
6)Try restarting the computer or try adapter on a different computer.

Drivers


I would find my computer manufacturers web site. Look for an area like Support, Technical Support, Downloads or Drivers. I would at a minimum expect to enter the model or my motherboard and the Operating System. Then I will probably be presented with a list of files to download. Some manfacturer's have additional information requirements to further refine the list of software/drivers to that appropriate to your motherboard. If you need additional assistance please provide the manufacturer and model of your mother board in need of drivers and I will attempt to locate them for you.

XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation


I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.
