My NIC Card *The one on the topic title* stopped functioning a few days ago. I used Device Manager and it said that there wasn't enough resources for the card to use.

Now it says......

"The device cannot start (Code 10)".

Can someone help me fix this? Oh and BTW I have another NIC card. I also recently installed a game controller.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. This from M$:
Code 10
If the device has a "FailReasonString" value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator places this registry string value there. If there is no "FailReasonString" in the hardware key, the following generic error message is displayed:

This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Try upgrading the device drivers for this device.

Solution button: Update Driver

To resolve this error code, make sure the device is connected to the computer correctly. For example, make sure all cables are plugged in fully and that all adapter cards are properly seated. Follow the suggested solution button and update the device driver. It may be possible to remove the device and redetect it using the Add New Hardware wizard.

I tried updating the driver. It was successful but it's now giving me "Code 12" now. I don't even know what resources the NIC is using. :whistling:

" This device cannot find any free <type> resources to use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you must disable another device that is using the resources this device needs. To do this, click Hardware Troubleshooter and follow the instructions in the wizard."


When I press the "Resource" tab on the device property page, it doesn't show any conflicting devices or resources that are being used whatnot.
