    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.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer


I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!
