Belkin G+ Desktop Card

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

Re: Belkin G+ Desktop Card

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.

Just place network card and installed disk and unable to connect to the internet btw comp has been reformated.

Use a computer that does have Internet access.

From the manufacturer's web-site:

download the selected driver.

Copy it to a USB memory-stick or to an external hard-drive.

Take the files to your computer, and install the drivers.

How do I install my Belkin F5D7051 wireless adapter without the installation CD?

To install the adapter you will definately need a disc. because the adapter will not work without the Drivers. Drivers are very important for the adapter. One more thing that if you have WIN XP or VISTA then you don't need the set up utility but still you need the drivers for the adapter.
If you do not have the disc. You can download the drivers from the manufacturer's web site and install the drivers for your adapter.

Restored factory settings on pc & cant re -instal belkin adaptor

The Belkin site has very specific instructions for installing this adapter in a pc with Vista. These instructions are at:
I would first unistall any Belkin Software that has already been installed, shut down the system completely and then restart. After you have fully restarted the system then follow the Belkin Site instructions EXACTLY. Any variation is apt to mean an unsuccessful install. Good Luck and have patience.

Belkin wireless G plus Desktop Card

Try this site and give the different drivers a go. The f5d7000 driver should work if you have tried the Win 2000 driver with no luck(although WIN ME does normally use WIN 2000 drivers in some hardware cases)
