Pc card slot will not work

My husband and I drive tractor trailer. I have had a laptop and pc card to get on line for 6 years now. We had ATT then they changed there name to Cingular. We had a Sony 860 with Cingular. It worked great for two years. Cingular changed there name to ATT and our cell phone service was sooo bad and so was the pc card service. About 2 weeks later the cell phone service was great but the pc card service was still almost stopped. We were told to up grade our pc card so we did. We had a 881. I uninstalled the 860 and installed the communication manager for the 881. I could get on line for 5 min. then kicked off. When I looked at the device wizard the card info was not there so I would reinstall the cd.I got a blue screen so I called ATT tech. They said they were having problems with that and to go on line and download the patch. I said I was sitting in a 80' long truck/trailer and were 2500 miles from home. He told me to go to WIFI. I dont have a clue how to use that or where to find it. He told me to go to Starbucks. Like I could get my truck near one of them! We went to ATT. The tech worked on my computer for 3 hours. Sent us to best buy. They got my computer working. WE went back to ATT they tryed to install the communication manager. He got the blue screen. He handed me my laptop , gave me the money for my pc card I payed and said go to Verizon. I did. I now have a Verizon PC Card. I am on my husbands 6 year old laptop today. I installed the Verizon cd but could not connect on the internet. I looked in my device manager and 2 of my usb hug have red xs. I ran the cd in my husbands computer and have been on line and it is fast! What do I need to do to get my usb hub to work. I uninstalled it and shut my computer down and the same thing. I am not great with computers but I do know how to do some thing.

Your laptop should have been supplied with a Utility CD which contains a copy of the user manual and all the drivers. There is also a copy of the drivers on the laptop itself, you can find it by browsing to the c:\applications\drivers folder. Finally you can download some of them from The Tech Guys website.
The Wireless LAN card uses a Ralink RT72 chipset so if you're struggling to find drivers then the "USB(RT257x/RT2671)" ones on the Ralink site should work -

Memory Upgrades This laptop has two memory slots. One slot is accessed by removing the cover underneath the laptop (see the "Bottom of Laptop" section below)

Could you please tell me how I can use an ATT phone w780 sony ericsson with a tmobile sim card?

Hi i'm Rain.
You will need to take the At&t phone and the sim card from your T-Mobile to a Cell Phone company where they do repairs and tell them you want to flash it so it works in an At&t providing the ATT phone uses a sim. They both must use a sim and the sim must fit into the sims slot on th ATT mobile device.

Type II PC Card Slot does not work

Probably the drivers are missing. Go to Start, Control Panel,Syatem, Hardware, Device Manager. There should be a line that says PCMCIA adapters. If it has a red or yellow check mark then the drivers are faulty. If it's not there the drivers are missing. Download a new set of drivers from

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.

    Pc card slots

    Have you tested the card in another laptop to be sure that its working? You shouldnt need updated drivers for it. Have used new card on 10 year old laptops before and they worked fine. Are you sure that the slot is functional?
