1. Check the PCMCIA Sockets in the Device Manager. Be sure thereare no exclamation marks on the adapter and no red "X".
2. Try a different PCMCIA slot.
3. The laptop may have a Cardbus (32bit) slot. Most of the timethis can be configured for PCMCIA (16bit) cards and should bebackward compatible. If other solutions do not work, check the BIOSfor a setting to DISABLE Cardbus or set the Cardbus slot to PCMCIA.Then restart the computer.
