My friend pulled out his card without stopping or ejecting the card and now it won't find the card or being able to install this has happened to me before but I just replaced the card thinking that it was broke but he knows for a fact that his isnt broke.. is there any resolution to this problem?

Thanks~

Oh yeah its a Dell True Mobile 1300 Wireless Internet Card and his laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1100

- you have tried other cards in its place to wake up the slot =


ideas

- paste this: devmgmt.msc
- press: enter
see if the there are any yellow blob on the icons =
see in your device or his device is seen there =

runbox command
- press: winkey + r
- paste this: diskmgmt.msc
- press: enter
see if the drive letter is correct and showing =

runbox command
- press the buttons: winkey + r
- paste this: appwiz.cpl
- press: enter
if his wifi program is there uninstall it =
also, you can uninstall then reinstall your wifi program =
(do not have card in, nor introduce card in slot until after installation)
