wireless network card wont fit laptop pcmcia slot

  Emperor Penguin 18:37 29 Sep 2006

I have a dell 1300 inspiron laptop and i have just connected my main pc to the orange broadband with their livebox wireles modem. now i am trying to get a wireless connection working with my father's laptop. the problem is that the network card wont go into the slot. it's the same width and it looks as though it should fit but it only pushes in about halfway and then i encounter resistance. i obviously dont want to push it too hard for fear of breaking something. i cannot find any information about this and Dell technical support is a nightmare. Why wont the card go in? it's a brand new card and the laptop is only 3 months old.
