The card was working fine until I recently formatted my hard drive and did a clean re-install of windows from the 'System restore' disk that came with my Samsung M50 Laptop. Since then the card stubbornly refuses to work on that computer.
The 'wireless manager' software can't find the modem and when I look in device manager it reports 'This device cannot find enough resources that it can use. (Code 12)' error.
The resources tab simply says that the device isn't using any resources as it cannot start so I don't know what is causing the conflict.
I know the card is working because I've tested it in my Sony Vaio (and i'm using it to connect to the net right now) so I think the problem must be with windows or the driver, so far I have tried the following with no success:
The troubleshooter (a waste of time)
Disabling all the other network cards and modems on my system from device manager.
Un-installing and then re-installing the GC89 drivers (there are no more recent drivers available)
Re-installing windows (again!)
I found this thread on wincert.net which describes a similar problem with windows Vista but sadly no solution.
Possibly related to this is a phantom floppy disk drive that keeps appearing in device manager.
My system set-up is as follows:
Win XP Pro SP 2
Pentium M 2GHz processor
160Gb Hard drive
It is driving me absolutely crazy, any help would be very much appreciated.
