I am trying to install a Verizon Wireless V740 wireless card on a Dell Precision laptop running XP Pro SP3.  I have VZW Access manager installed correctly because I can use another card in the same laptop.  This is weird but he wireless card in question does work with other laptops.   Here's what happens: the laptop recognizes that a device has been installed.  It goes through the regular Add Hardware setup screens and it recognizes that it's a Texas Instruments device.  However, after it recognizes the device it says it cannot install it.  I have attached a screen shot of the Hardware Update screen.  This is where I think I am having problems.   I googled the message and received zero hits.

Uninstall and reinstall the software.  Make sure you use the CD that came with the wireless card.  I have this exact same card and I have had to uninstall/reinstall before.

Not yet.  I don't have the replacement CD. I went to the verizon dealer where I bought the card and they didn't have a replacement disk either.  They told me to go to a Verizon Store that isn't a reseller to get the disk.  The only problem that the closest store is 48 miles away so I ordered online and I am having it shipped.  I have tried reinstalling the software from the Verizon download area and still have the same problem.  Thanks for the follow-up.
