Re: Dell Inspirion 4000 PCMCIA slot not working

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

well - I have the laptop back here at home for a look,
and yup - it is weird - Dell Inspiron 4000 -
The external card - SMC2635W - works fine in the top PCMCIA,
but when put into the bottom slot, it just beeps a couple of times.
Looking at Device Manager - it shows the Network Adapter with the yellow
and it indicates that the drivers are not installed for this device.
We then said to re-install the drivers....
the XP hardware wizard found the hardware,
and installed the drivers...   and now it works in both slots -
Thanks - Guess I've not seen this before....
