I have been working on my brother-in-laws Sony laptop and I am trying to get his PCIMIA slots to work. He bought it used and they have not worked since buying it.
Whenever I plug any kind of PCIMIA card into the slot nothing happens. For instance I have set up a wireless network but when I install any wireless card into the laptop I get nothing...no lights no sounds nothing.
If I delete the drivers and then reboot XP recognizes the hardware and reinstalls the drivers. This tells me, I think, that they are at least partially working. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
It is a Sony model# PCG-973L
