Logging on to WinXP home network--certificate validation?

Hi Folks,
I bought a laptop from a friend and the laptop is running WinXP. I added my secure home network to the laptop and entered the password. The laptop sees the network but says "cannot find a certificate card to log on" and then will not connect--just continually says "validating identity" but never connects successfully.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Donna
