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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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  You are using an outdated OS with a modern mobile NIC, and it is no wonder the OS cant assign the right interrrupts for it.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.
