Intel 6200 AGN wireless adapter will not start (Code 10)

There seems to be an issue all of sudden with the 6200 AGN wireless adapter not starting (Code 10) under device manager.

Similar post is made here on Intel website: http://communities.intel.com/thread/32598

I have fresh install Win7 Pro 64-bit on a DELL N7010 laptop; I changed out the bad wireless adapter with this new 6200 model that DELL says is compatible. I have installed drivers from DELL website, from Intel's website, even tried older drivers to no avail. What gives?

It took me 30 min to take this blessed model apart to change adapter (no compartment on back) so that is not feasible to keep taking laptop apart. If I can't get solution I will just get a slim-short USB wireless adapter from store. Help!

Have you installed the chipset drivers, provided there is one available for your OS? Is there a switch/button/hot-key to turn the wireless on/off?

Can you post back the hardware id, i.e. pid and vid of the new NIC?

The problem is with the Dell, not with the wireless, so we need the model number of the Dell, OK?

I believe there is a few details missing, from my sources this model bundles with xp and Vista not window 7,  what was the previous xp or vista 32 bit or x64 bit/
as you said here>
I have fresh install Win7 Pro 64-bit on a DELL N7010 laptop<< did you install the appropriate motherboard drivers for the previous windows to run in windows 7 x 64?

Simplest is the  USB wireless adapter from store.
