This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

I have a Pcmcia adapter Ricoh Compatible Cardbus controller installed on my Desktop Running Windows XP Home Addition.
I tried to install NetGear 108 Mbps wireless PcCard WG511T
I placed the card into the slot of the Pcmcia adapter and ran my disk install disk
Every thing went fine and said it needed to reboot to finish.

But when I tried open netgear card not inserted.

I looked at the driver in the system area. and this what said.

I tried to reinstall and I get the say answer.
I have tried to free up some resources and it still has the same answer.
Any body have any ideas on this.
I was wondering if it could be my BIO cause? I don't know where to go from here.

do you have enough ram? post the specs please.
Normally you have to install the software, then reboot and insert the adapter (or insert the adapter when the software installation routine asks you to). Did you install that way? If not, first check the installation procedure, then if it should be done the way I described, uninstall the software, remove the card and reboot. Then run the installation again. If that wasn't the problem, Remove hardware that isn't necessary from your PC, there might be somethingusing the same resources that your new wireless card wants to use.

I would get rid of the " Pcmcia adapter Ricoh Compatible Cardbus controller"

It is old, it is a resource hog, and it is probably freezing the PCMCIA bus from defective software drivers.  Why dont you just remove that one, and watch your laptop come to life as to what you can add to the PC cards.
