Hello, I'm new here. I appreciate you trying to help.

I have a Dell Latitude D610. The Wireless Adapter is Intel/Proset 2200BG. It always worked, no problems. The other morning I started getting Blue Screen errors. I repaired the Windows installation with the repair disk that comes with an XP computer, and I don't get blue screens now, but the system is freezing on booting up about half the time now.

The main symptom is that my wireless quit working--I get a "Code 10 device cannot start" error on my wireless adapter in Device Manager, when it even shows up at all.

I got the latest drivers from Intel, it worked briefly, but not anymore. The wireless adapter works every once in a while, but then, nothing.

I can still connect to the internet fine through the ethernet cable.

I opened up the case and made sure the actual card was seated properly.

That's about all I know to put in here to start with. Please let me know if I can be more specific about something.

Try removing the wireless drivers (totally)...then installing new drivers.
