my external belkin wireless card seems to be stuck. it's working fine but I can't eject it from the compaq presario 2100 notebook (windows xp). any tips?

If you mean you cannot dismount it via the Remove option, shut down the system then you can remove it safely.

I'm assuming it is a PCMCIA card. Sometimes the release mechanism does get a bit stuck and you have to give it a good jab rather than a gentle push. Try stabbing at it with a finger a few times - this usually works for me.

If you have long fingernails, once the button has been pressed, you may be able to retrieve it ok.

Lots of luck.

Expansion through heat maybe ?
