Laptop keeps restarting when inserting USB 2.0 PCMCIA card
Posted on 2005-04-19
I'm trying to install a Conceptronic USB 2.0 PCMCIA card (CSP480C2) on a Compasq Armada 1550T laptop with Win98 SE
Everytime I insert the card the laptop restarts, and is not detected by windows when it restarted. When I switch the laptop off and insert the card, the laptop hangs at the windows logo screen.
I've upgraded the RAM to 80MB and tried to turnoff/uninstall all unnecassary processes and aplications, and also upgraded the BIOS.
I also tried whith a PCMCIA Belkin network card and a gigabyte PCMCIA wireless network card, both of them working fine without a problem. I tried with another Conceptronic USB card but with the same result, the laptop restarts. Both of these cards works fine on other laptops.
Any ideas and advice will be appreciated
