There is no known test other that physically installing a card .However by default the drivers are installed as the software you are using should detect the hardware, ok look under device manager pcmcia adapters,if you have it installed the software knows its there,so apart from installing a device in the slot thats the only way you will know.
Good Luck

What type of pcmcia slot is on the hp pavilion dv6000.?


Most laptops have Type II PCMCIA slots. Some laptops have one slot, others have two slots. For details read the following :-

  • Type I cards can be up to 3.3 mm thick, and are used primarily for adding additional ROM or RAM to a computer.
    • Type II cards can be up to 5.5 mm thick. These cards are often used for modem and fax modem cards.
  • Type III cards can be up to 10.5 mm thick, which is sufficiently large for portable disk drives. As with the cards, PCMCIA slots also come in three sizes:
  • A Type I slot can hold one Type I card
    • A Type II slot can hold one Type II card or one Type I card
  • A Type III slot can hold one Type III card or any combination of two Type I or II cards.

    Pci card slot


    Dennis,

    Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can not say with 100% certainty.

    However this is a common place that laptop manufacturers put what is called a PCMCIA slot. This serves much the same function as a PCI slot does in a Desktop unit with a couple of exceptions. the cards that fit into this slot are completely housed in a metal sheath (To meet FCC regulations about interference) and the cards are typically smaller, and are "Hotswappable" which means they can be removed and replaced in the laptop without powering down and rebooting.

    THere are Many adapters that can use this slot from Ethernet cards, to WiFI adapters, and even external Audio cards.

    PCMCIA cards come in "Type I" and "Type II" varieties. All PCMCIA slots are type I compatable but before you buy a type II card be sure to check for compatability.

    Depending on your manufacturers spec's for THAT model laptop you may have as few as on slot or many stacked one on top of each other.

    Hope this helps you,
    Dave

    READ ME FIRST BEFORE TAKING ANY ACTION. BY NOT DOING SO, CAN MAKE YOUR SYSTEM NOT BOOT CORRECTLY.


    First thing I would do, is look under Device Manager, to see if the PCMCIA slot is not install correctly. The software driver could be corrupted just like Microcrap. Not sure how to. Very Simple. Here's how.

    Right click My Computer, scroll down to properties or select My Computer, then press ALT and Enter at same time. Either way same window pops up.
    You will be looking for a Tab on the top that says "Hardware". Below that is a button says "Device Manager"
    Looking at the list for "PCMCIA" click the plus sign on the left to expand it. Unless you see a yellow triangle next to it, then it's install correctly. To fix it, you can always clcik on it and on the top there's a icon that says "Uninstall" If/When you click it windows will uninstall the hardware only. There's a icon in the same area:"Scan Hardware Devices" Either Click it or restarting the pc, windows will try to install it again. As long as the software drivers are not uninstall, windows will try to install that device again. Most of the time, it will install the hardware without any action form the user. Sometimes you need to tell it where the files are at. If ALL checks out, then check the PCMCIA card and the slot o the pc. The pins could be bents on the inside. Again if all check out fine, try a different PCMCIA card.

    Let me know wat happens

    Thinkpad 380ed + USB PCMCIA-card. Can it work?


    This is probably due to the power requirements of the pcmcia card you have plugged in. There are 5volt and 3.3volt slots. You have probably plugged a 5volt card into a 3.3volt pcmcia slot.
