    my netbook (see sig) was working fine until a couple of weeks ago, when it dropped all wireless connections and refused to connect. The computer didn't recognize the card after that, so I installed a fresh copy of W7. It now shows in device manager, but Windows can't install the driver for it. The message I am getting in the dialog box is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

    Any idea whats up? Do you guys think the Dell card is toast? It's only a couple of months old.

    the hardware might of died. Without actually having another part to swap out I can't say for sure, but I've seen it happen.
