The PCMCIA slot on my laptop isn't working. I've tried two wireless cards in it and neither are showing the power light.
Can anyone advise how to get this working again?

Thanks in advance!

Hi

Well, you have tested it with 3rd party wireless cards.
Did you check if some drivers are necessary to use these cards?

Please check also in the device manager if there are some yellow exclamation marks.
Furthermore in the BIOS you could change some settings. Usually the device configuration is set to “Setup by OS”. Try to change it to “All devices” and then you can also change the PC Card controller mode to PCIC compatible or CardBus/16 bit or auto selected.
Please check all possibilities.
