My D-Link Card: This device cannot start. (Code 10

  beastieboy 12:31 31 Aug 2003

When I try and install my D-Link DFE 538TX I get this error: This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I have installed latest drivers and tried different PCI slots. The network card worked a bout a month ago when I tried it but fails to do so now. I am running Windows XP Pro

Please help.

I also have a USB Alcatel 330 Modem - will this cause an IRQ conflict, if so, haow to resolve?

There is a MSKB on this error but it refers to W2K click here

in control panel - system - hardware - device manager and see if the d-link card is mentioned. If it is try properties and you might be able to start it from there.

that will also tell you if you have any irq conflicts.

When modem wa sin it didn't work, or when it was out, I also have latest MS updates

Have you contacted D-Link about this?

They have not replied in a week - might just get an Intel card for £2 and save the hassle... but would like a solution to it

Does anyone know what else might be the problem and how 2 solve it?
