Question about NEC USB 2.0 ( ) Laptop PCMCIA CardBus PC Card Adapter (USBP2D20) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Windows doesn't detect the adapter

The card works better with windows' own drivers. I have tried with both drivers. The problem is: the adapter worked fine for weeks but now windows just decides that the adapter is no longer connected. I can't see it in the device manager any more. This happens totally randomly. When I try to unplug & plug it again, windows doesn't detect it. Not even if I do "Scan for hardware changes". I managed to get it detected by removing PCMCIA devices from device manager and then scanning for hardware changes. Still, after a few hours the adapter isn't there. I have HP Compaq nx9005 laptop with XP Home SP2.

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8

Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

My flash dive is not work pc is not recognize it

Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

If you have an older operating system then go here to download the driver:

I bought a TP-LINK TLWN7200ND adapter, but it doesn't detect any 802.11b/g router, even with the latest version fo the driver for Windows XP. How can I fix it? Does only work with TP-LINK 802.11n...

i have used a similar adapter on windows 7 as well as on ubuntu 10.04 (linux), and it detects it upon restart without any external drivers.

try on a system with any of these to confirm that the adapter is good. this could be a hardware fault.

also, try changing the card slot as there could be a problem with the slot.

if it works fine on these, then make sure you are using the correct drivers (the ones exactly for this device and not for another similar device)

When you purchased the network-adapter, did it include a CD-ROM with device-drivers for Windows 98? Did you install those drivers?

Many "new" network-adapters include software that *ONLY* supports newer versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7) and no longer include support for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Look on eBay for another 3COM adapter, since that adapter worked for you.

Is Hi-speed USB 2.0 5-port PCI card compatible with Windows 7 and is there a driver available

According to belkins wweb site there is no Windows 7 driver or support for this card. From what I could find on else where it should just work with Windows 7. If you have the card installed and it is not being detected by Windows 7 I would remove the card with the system powered off. Turn it on so it "notices" that its no longer there, then power off and put the card back in, in another slot if you have one. turn it back on and it should detect it.

My speed stream wireless pci adapter does not work. any time it is enabled it restarts the computer

Hi, you need to follow these steps:

Remove Adapter and Reboot.Download the correct software for your Adapter. For example, there are two versions of the SS1024 driver and they will not work with the wrong adapter.Install the network adapter and reboot.When windows 98se asks you for the location of the driver, browse to the directory in C:\ and select it.From then on, use windows 98se to manage your connection.I hope, it will work for you.

Cheers
