This is typical if the OS was installed off a Retail CD and not the Restore CDs. The motherboard or peripheral drivers are not installed and the person who installed the OS may not know that Microsoft doesn't do that.
Fixes vary from machine to machine, but IBM has a web site with drivers that may include one to get the motherbaord supported for the OS of choice.
The stock BIOS options should be examined as well.
Hi, I hope someone knows how to solve this..
I'm trying to install a CNet Wireless Lan adapter (CNWLC-811) in a notebook (IBM ThinkPad 765L) with Windows 98. I have installed the drivers correctly, and windows recognize the adapter without problems. But when I try to open the tool that came with the adapter, it says that there isn't an adapter or that the drivers are wrong. So I went to the Device Manager and find out that my adapter is with a yellow exclamation (!), and it says that it is disable because "IRQ Steering is disable. Click here to enable IRQ Steering". But nothing happend when I click there. I've read a lot of information, look at the BIOS, upgrade the BIOS, but I can't find the solution. Please, if someone know how to do it, it will be really great.
Thanks in advance,
