Can't enable Wireless Card

Got a laptop, Latitude 830, with an intell wireless card. Started having issue with the OS seeing the card so contacted Dell and they replaced the MB and Wireless. When I first booted the system after that the card show fine using the Intel ProSet software. However when I rebooted it the OS did not recognize the card. I had been logged in using my normal user name and profile under our domain name so I decided to try logging in using our helpdesk user name and under the local machine which worked fine. Reboote the machine again using the helpdesk login and local machine and now the system see the card but show it disabled. When I try to enable it says it failed to enable.

Does this sound like an OS issue?

Another thing just happened. Went into the connections window and opened the properties of the wireless card and found the netware was in there. Tried to uninstall the netware and the system gave me the BSD.

Any thoughts?

Hi

Run your  laptop in safe mode

after login, open run

type devmgmt.msc ( device manager )

remove existing installed adapter & after that reboot your machine.

start os in normal mode then after login, install latest driver for the hardware..hopefully it works
