I have an Acer and I clean installed Windows 2000. To get the PC-Card slot to work I had to install a driver from Acer. Yours is likely to need same. Check with the maker?
I have a Presario 1247 and am having problems getting it to recognize PCMCIA cards under Windows 2000. It is showing the Texas Instruments Cardbus controller in the device manager and working ok but When I put a card into the PCMCIA slot nothing happens. No recognition of the card. I cannot install the drivers until the laptop see's it. I just uninstalled ME and it worked fine, but when i clean installed 2000 it will not recognize any new hardware. Any suggestions?
