    Thanks that was helpful but still no solution. I have further information. The Card is working, tried in another laptop. When plug into 1 PCMIC slot a get 2 bleeps when into the other nothing. DM gives the following message "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12). If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.". There are a lot of device connected to IRQ 11. Where do I go from here.

Hi,

if it works on the onboard usb.
Theres a chance that either the pcmcia slot drivers are incorrect, or the actual slot is faulty.
Try it in another slot, if you have 1.
update any onboard device drivers. if applicable. try the card in a different laptop. to eliminate the card. alternatively, try a different card in the slot. wifi card et,c.

    Hi,

    i,d try installing at least 512 meg of ram, or disable/remove some of the start up items. try removing any other add-ons, such as printer usb devices et,c. the 2 beeps depending on slow or fast.

    Usually means Parity error in first 64k Ram. Replace memory with Good Chips. AMI Bios Code Suggests 2 short Beeps:- Post Failure One or more Hardware Tests Have Failed.

    Most of this points towards, insufficient memory installed.

    If you have system restore Disks, i,d suggest to uninstall remove some devices from IRQ 11. when you reboot, it will automatically find them and re-install. finally you may have a virus in memory or hard drive.

    hope this helps.

I have a Prosound guitar to USB cable but my PC does not recognize it.Can you help?


Solution #1 has misread the question. The question would be better worded: "I have a 1/4" to USB guitar cable manufactured (or marketed) by ProSound ...". This device should be recognised by Windows as a Plug 'n' Play device. There are no drivers to install. If Windows does not recognise the device, it might be a fault with the cable or Plug 'n' Play. If this a Maplin A54HZ cable, there is an LED at the USB end which lights when connected. My A54HZ was recgnised by XP Pro SP3 straight away and self installed.
