I have tried many times with different types of drivers - no success. Finally I bought a new wireless card, a Intel Pro Wireless 2200bg mini PCI. I have replaced the 2100 card with the new one, restarted, and: at least now windows recognize the exact type of the wireless card and installs the drivers for it, but finally the result is the same: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"! I have also re-installed Windows using the recovery CDs, cause I thought the registries could be "overloaded" after so many attempts with the old card. I took out the new card a few times and put it back again, thinking that there is a week contact. All these actions have had no result, the error talking about "Code 10" is still there...
Please help me with an advice / idea cause I really don't know what to try further.
Thank you in advance!
I have exactly the same problem! I did almost the same things to solve this problem but no success!
My intel pro wireless 2200bg card has a yellow exclamation mark on it and windows xp says "this device cannot start (code 10)".
I bought a new intel 2200bg card, I install windows xp again and I installed new 2200bg card into my laptop but no success again!
So, after all I think I will be using a USB wireless stick instead of my notebook's wireless card
I think this error is NOT related to wlan card driver or to any software error etc.
It should be a hardware error of any other part in my notebook and I think it affects wlan card, I don't know what other hardware it is but it can be a control chip or something like that. It should be broken so wlan card can not start...
Any help or any other ideas?
