Question about Belkin (F5D7000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I just bought the Belkin G+ Desktop Card, and followed the manufacturer's guide, installed the disk on my win xp desktop, then was prompted to insert the card into my pc and switch it back on. After a successful installation, I re-started my computer, only to find the message ""reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device". I rebooted but got the same message, I then rebooted into BIOS, and got the following message "setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer". I have spoken to Belkin, who tell me I have to contact my PC supplier. Well, firstly my PC supplier is no longer in business, and secondly the PC was working perfectly well before the Card install. Can anyone please help me. I urgently need to get this pc back up and running again. Thank you
Something you have done has stopped the hard disk drive from working.
first check all the internal connections between the hard disk drive and mother board and hard drive and power supply.
Wiggle them around and make sure they are in straight.
then check you didnt drop any screws etc inside the pc and these are shorting something out
you need to check that the ribbon cables that connect your hard disk drive werent damaged when you fitted the wireless card
then i think you need some help
confirm that the pc can boot from a floppy or cd
you might need to change the bios settings first
you need to check all the bios settings if there is any chance that you might have changed them accidently
you need to check that the power supply is working correctly (unlikely)
i wouldnt expect that it is the card that caused the problem
then i would consider the possiblity that there was a virus on the installation disk (unlikely)
then i might wonder if coincidently the hard disk drive failed at that time.
