    Well you issue is a very unique one... haven't heard about a situation like this.


    • Unplug your Mouse. Oh wait are you using a MOUSE or the TOUCHPAD on your Laptop.

    • If you are using the touchpad, then install/lend a USB MOUSE, Oh wait; Does your system or Laptop completely "freeze" or is it simply the ">mouse<" that stops functioning

    • Please also specify your OS ( Windows XP or Vista or 95 or Linux or...) and also your Laptop make like for example HP Compaq Presario 5610 or Acer Travelmate 4620 or Toshiba...)

    • Try connecting the card in one of your friends laptops and see if it works there

    • Download the l8est nessessary drivers for your laptop

    Kind Regards,

    Stef

How to use sim slot


The rear SD slot is not a SIM card. It is under the Cardbus slot.

It is for memory cards of the SD type, not a SIM card which is for cell phones, as it does not have a telephone facility.

Usb pcmcia cardbus card will not lock in place


Are you sure? Push it. On some laptops there might be two slots for the card (one above the other). If your system has space for 2 cards, try the other slot.

hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

The ThinkPad uses the following adapters: v 360, 365X, 380, 600: 16-Bit PCMCIA v T20, T22, T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI v T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI Daughter Card v T30: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB) v T4x: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB). 16- and 32-Bit PC Card adapters are configured during ThinkPad initialization. Network Interface Controller data rates are: v For Token Ring: 4/16 MBps v For Ethernet: 10 Mbps...........16 bit PCMCIA 10/100 Mbps.......32 bit CardBus 10/100 Mbps.......MiniPCI and Daughter Card 10/100 Mbps.......T3x and T40 LOB 10/100/1000 Mbps..T42 LOB The MiniPCI Ethernet adapter is accessed behind a removable plate located on the bottom of the ThinkPad directly above the Model/Type S/N sticker. For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.

Acer Aspire 5100-3357 lost function of keyboard, touchpad and USB


hello, this has been one of the most reported problem with the 5100 model. i have 2 of them, and they have done the same thing! one i had 2 find and install a new mainboard-400 bucks! not very cost friendly. i did post a solution more than a year ago, but it is a work around that let me use the acer with the dead keyboard,touchpad,usb- you must buy a pcmcia usb card, it goes in the slot on the left side of the acer 5100. then a usb mouse and keyboard will work. (you can get this cardbus adapter cheap, as 400 bucks is 2 much. these pcmcia cardbus card come with 2 or 4 ports. this will let you use the pc, it has been a great solution for me and a lot of others, been in use over a year like this. acer is no help, unless you wish 2 spend a large amount of $. the one with the new board lasted about 8 months before the usb port stopped working for the second time, i then got a second cardbus usb card and have usb again. sorry for your problem.. good luck! do as i say and the acer will work again.( a problem model) just search for pcmcia usb cardbus you will find many 2 choose from- i picked the ones with the NEC chipset, as these are reliable! be well!

My laptop does not detect my DWL-G630 cardbus card.


I am assuming it is using the PCMCIA slot on the laptop.

Since the OS is reinstalled, there is a high possibily that the drivers for the laptop devices are not fully installed.

click start -> run.
type in compmgmt.msc then ok
click on device manager and check all devices are installed correctly. If there is a yellow question mark or red cross on it then it means the driver is not present or its disabled.

Try to download all drivers for your laptop from HP website and install them.

Need instructions how to install wireless card


If you are installing an external wireless card, there should be a set of instructions that came with the card. Those should be your guidelines.
If you got one from a friend/neighbor, follow these steps:
1) Insert the card into the PCMIA slot 2) Let the computer recognize there is a new hardware.
3) download the driver from the cd, or go to its manufacturer's website to download the driver for the wireless card. If it is Linksys, go to linksys.com, belkin, belkin.com, etc.
After that, the card and windows should automatically detect your network settings, and you can enjoy the internet from there

Ethernet


Check the drivers for the ethernet port in the device manager to see if they are there. If so, then uninstall them and reboot. The machine will find the device and reinstall the drivers. This will correct the problem if it's a driver glitch. If the drivers are not there, then you will need to go to Toshiba's support site and download them. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "can't open the ethernet slot to insert card", could you be more specific and I'll see if I can help you through it.

Any type of PCMCIA network card should work okay.
Go down to Staples, Best Buy or Office Depot and find
a decent PCMCIA network card.  You should be able to find
one for under $50
