Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
Sorry for all the following info., but it's a series of loops I'm going through. My question up front is whether a malfunctioning PCMCIA card can cause the entire computer to freeze up when making on the internet.
Whenever I can make an internet connection (beginning today after a long time of succesfully doing so), I have a problem with wireless connectivity and my system freezing up. On booting up, I am either able to make a wireless connection or I get an error message stating that the IntelPROSet/Wireless Software was unable tro detect a supported wireless adapter. Please install a supported adapter. I have an IntelPro 2915abg wireless connection. The Intel Software troubleshooting says to install a driver. I have installed the driver. The Device Manager states that my PCMCIA adapter cannot start (Code 10), and my attempts at the troubleshooting steps haven't helped. Although sometimes I'm able to get it working.
Sometimes there is also a Generic CardBus Controller error noted.
When I can regain a wireless connection, the strength is excellent, but I get the following error message on booting up: "You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer.
To restart the connection and try to establish full connectivity, click Repair.
If clicking Repair does not restore connectivity, the problem might be with the network, not with this computer. Contac the person who manages your network."
I can access the internet, but only for a short while (1 minute or so) before the entire laptop freezes, no mouse control, no ctrl-alt-del
I have clicked the Repair button. It didn't help.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
The freeze up problem is due to the limited HHD space or memories. please check your HHD and see how much free sapce you have, and check your memories. the base system came with 256MB, which is too little for anything to work porperly. for you to connected to teh wireless, you should have minimum 1GB of memories. some people may disagree with me, but that is what I found to work better, if you have more than required memories.
