I recently bought a wireless pci adapter for my desktop. When I went to install it there were no extra pci slots. Being that the wireless card will be used for my main internet access I removed the regular ethernet card from the pci slot and installed the wireless card. My wireless connection is up and running fine. A day after the installation a blue screen pops up and says to check my newly installed hardware and make sure its connected properly requiering me to reboot my computer. This screen has been displayed a couple of times. Could this problem be the results of forgeting to uninstall the first card before I removed it? If so how can the problem be fixed?

Go to start/control panel and then go into network and internet connections. Click on my network places and then view network connections. If old network connection is still there you can right click and disable.

Also check in control panel/performance and maintenance/system. Select hardware tab then device manager, look under network adaptors. Right click to remove any cards that are not supposed to be there.
