I installed a DLink DWLG510 wireless desktop adapter in a PC running WXP SP3 I got the error code 10: this device cannot work. Can you help?

Try uninstalling the driver and software then reboot, and reinstall if that does not work then
Uninstall the driver, software shutdown computer remove card reboot and reinstall. If this does not work it is probably a registery issue.
SO uninstall the driver and software
edit the registery value
click start - run Regedit to open registry editor, be careful to select the right value here.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - System - CurrentControlSet - Enum
now right click on Pci folder and select permissions
click on everyone in this box and check full access
reboot it should solve your problem.
Make sure the encryption you are using on the router is WEP that is what works for this specific card.

My dell inspirion all the sudden wont find wired networks and in the device manager it says "this devise cannot start (code 10)

Code 10 means that the drivers are not installed properly. May be that the drivers need to reinstalled or rolled back

Try rolling back the drivers first, that should resolve the issue for you. this can be done from the device manager itself. right click on the device, then click on properties and then on drivers and then click on rollback.

Else you may uninstall the drivers and then reinstall the drivers from Drivers & Utility disk.

Code 10

If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10)Recommended resolutions

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Update the driver

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

Error 10 Am trying to install on refurb desktop Have installed and uninstalled and installed again

Error code 10 in device manager means that the device cannot start. This is due to either the drivers are not updated, or the drivers are not recognized by the Device Manager.

Try the following:
- Uninstall and then reinstall the drivers.
- Make sure you have the updated drivers and the drivers are compatible with the operating system of the computer.
- Try to install the adapter to another computer, just to isolate the issue if this is a problem with the drivers or if it is a compatibility issue with the PC.

Please note: WUSB54GSC v1 drivers can also work with Win 7 using the Win Vista drivers.

On my Dell Inspiron 1521: Broadcom Network Adapter Error Code 10

Go to Dell and download the driver from there. The MS driver doesn't actually control the device, only controls function after device is active and working. Look on the bottom or back of the computer for the Dell service tag number, and use this to identify the correct device and get the device drivers. You may also find some other things there that weren't installed by the OS.

When MN-510 adapter makes connection, video drops out.

Try to uninstall and reinstall the video driver. Make sure you note down the make / model first! The lastest driver may fix this issue.

Code 10, intel pro/wireless

You can try updating the drivers for that wireless adapter. If the same happens, you can try to uninstall it completely then reinstall it with the updated drivers.

You can also try to install it on a different slot or a different laptop to test the connection.

If you have other problems, go ahead and press the ask button and i'll answer it for you.
