    The PCMCIA card is HP USB2.0 PM453A, but other cards do the same

    It does not freeze right away, it works fine for a short while

  • kajdas Sep 03, 2007

    That is what I found out from searching the web (a lot of people having the same problem) but I could not find any drivers that would fix this. When I click on "Update driver" for the PCMCIA hardware, is says I have the latest (Microsoft driver from 2001). The HP is of no help and their recommended driver Integrated213 does not do it.

    My USB Cardbus worked fine for months until I installed XP SP3 and some other updates. Then it has the same problem - it works for a short while then hangs the laptop.



    Previously I used it multiple times with flash drives for many & large file xfers. Now I can explore a file system on a flash drive but a small file transfer from the flash drive to the laptop hangs.



    Doing a system restore back to SP2 did not fix the problem!

I would go to your notebook manufacturers web site and download the latest pcmcia driver as it's obviously the driver thats causing the freezing.

Need an audio driver 4 windows 7


first i would recommend unplugging all audio devices, rebooting, then plugging them back in.

If that doesn't work then here is a link to the drivers for it: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=396420&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=385242&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228#113165


the drivers are for XP but on my compaq presario it still worked on windows 7.
