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

I have just bought a second hand compaq nc 4010 i have read that i can make it wireless using a pcmcia wifi card how do i install it as i have no disc drive on the nc4010?thank you


pcmcia is a card slightly smaller than the antique floppy disc that usually fits in a slot on the side of your laptop your model does have this slot, but personally I would go for a usb hsdpa modem as this provides faster broadband internet.
good luck

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.

Can u install afire wire card into a compaq presario c700


Yes, but it needs to be a Firewire PCMCIA card. If you do not have a spare PCMCIA slot then you need to remove the other PCMCIA device so you can insert the Firewire PCMCIA card when you need it.

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

Test and detect pcmcia slot without any card


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

PC wireless card


Dear Amy -

I looked up the Verizon Wireless card, and found that its a normal PCMCIA(PC Card) type adapter. This is a good thing; it means that you can purchase just about ANY laptop that has a standard PC Card slot(NOT Mini PC Card), and it should be compatible (You might, however, find compatibility issues with a Macintosh system.)

Keep in mind you will need to install the drivers for the card on any new system, and a new laptop is likely to come preloaded with Wondows Vista, so you will need a Vista compatible driver.

You can download any necessary drivers here:

I hope this helps you!

DELL 6400 pc card slot issue


check in device manager via control panel, then click classic view; that the pcmcia card bus controller is present in the list and install the card reader driver if one was supplied, if not then there is no need for a driver and it must be a fault with the pcmcia driver.
