Hi to everybody, I have a pc with a Intel Pro/100 SR mobile card, I'm using windows 2000, this network card is not working, this card is fine because works in my laptop, I already installed the most recent drivers for this card. When I open the device manager the card has this error:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

Any ideas ?. If you need more information about my system I will be happy to answer them in order to fix this. Thanks a lot for all your time. :D

Yes I did, I have no hardware conflicts or IRQ conflicts, the only sight of error is the message in the network adapter when I open the device manager.

windows 2000 does not suppport a lot of mobile NICs.  You are using an outdated OS with a modern mobile NIC, and it is no wonder the OS cant assign the right interrrupts for it.  Use a different more "antiquated" NIC for 2000, it is after all, 7 years old now.

Make sure you have downloaded and installed all the newest drivers for your motherboard. Is this a PC card? Sometimes the PCCard subsystem of a pc might also be broken.
