Error 10: Device cannot start

Two people have asked me to look at their PCs.  One is a Davicom 10/100 PCI NIC, and the other is a PCMCIA Linksys Wireless card.
 In both cases, getting error 10: device cannot start error in Device Manager.
 Switching PCI slots and PCMCIA ports hasn't helped, nor has trying to update drivers.
 Any ideas - both systems are running XP Home.
 Thanks!

What OS & version?

Without more info have to fall back to standard methods: Remove the drivers completely. Remove the cards. Re-install the latest drivers, and then the cards. Still unable to start at next boot? Do they work in other systems? Do other cards work in the first two systems?

Hi there,
there may conflicting drivers on the systems.
In device manager view hidden devices & remove any extraneous drivers relating to the network cards.
Failing that, both cards are probably stuffed.

Problem may be in driver or the card.
Try to D/L newest driver for both cards.
Try to replace PCI/PCMCIA ports.
PCI port could cause irq sharing that the card "doesn't like". PCMCIA could work on some other laptop but not this one. Try to replace with completly different network card.
