I have a dell inspiron 1100 laptop that will not start up ..it goes to a weird looking windows (like a dos window) and tells me that a device in the system modular cannot be identified. It seems to not to want to read the wireless card. I have restarted several times, and also removed card. I thought it should at least open up my operating system so I could use computer without wireless.
Any suggestions?

Try disabling that device in the BIOS when booting - it may let you in then.
