A 'type 2' PC card is a type of PCMCIA card. Basically pcmcia card are either type 1, 2 or 3. The difference between the type is the thickness of the card. Type 3 for example is double thinkness & requires 2 pcmcia slots for a single card.
This may sound like a strange question, but when you insert this card into one of the notebooks, how do you know that Windows hasn't detected it?

I assume HP are referring to a PC express slot. Express cards come in 2 types :
Type 1 = full size card & is 'L' shaped
Type 2 = smaller sized card & is rectangular in shape but narrower than a normal pcmcia card (34mm wide)
If you only have a PC express slot on the notebook but are trying to insert a standard pcmcia card, then this may explain why it's not being detected.
Or, is it possible you are trying to insert a PC express card into a standard pcmcia slot instead?
