Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer (ddcwda1_7) IntelPentium dual-core processor E2140 (1MB L2,1.60GH ?

Can't get wireless card to install

\015 I have tried everything I can think of to get this Linksys card to install, to no avail. I'm running XP Home, SP 3 on a Dell Inspiron 530. I install drivers from the CD, then insert card. When I power back up I get the CD install program and the found-new-hardware-wizard simultaneously...the CD program says it cannot detect the adapter and the wizard says it found the adapter but that it may not work properly because "a device attached to the system is not functioning." Under device manager, the Linksys card has the dreaded yellow ! and says that drivers must be reinstalled, but it won't install them. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, I have downloaded updated drivers and pointed the driver update utility to the correct folder....I only have the one PCI slot available so can't try a different slot. I have disabled anti-virus and firewall software.Dell diagnostic check says all on computer has passes inspection, and my computer exceeds the requirements listed on the package. It's almost as if the computer is blocking the installation. Is that possible, and if so, what on earth can I try to get this thing to install???Thanks for any advice.\015

Answers :

This is strange, and it sounds like you've done everything right, but.....have you tried a reverse install?
\015\012
\015\012Remove the card, un-install all the drivers and remove the device from the device manager if the uninstall doesn't do it.
\015\012
\015\012Shut the machine down (turn it off)
\015\012
\015\012Install the Linksys card in your available PCI slot.
\015\012
\015\012Start the machine back up. When the Found New Hardware message pops up, follow the prompts from there instead. Your PC may be able to load drivers it already has. If not and if it asks for a disk, then use the CD you got with the card.
\015\012
\015\012All of this assumes the card is ok to use with XP
