I know that this is a shot in the dark, but I wanted to see if anyone had experienced a problem like this. Our company just got us a few new desktops, and they're Optiplex 390s. I have an internal PCMCIA reader from my old XP machine that I'm moving to the Windows 7 machine. There are, of course, no PCI slots on the mobo of the new machine, so I had to buy a PCIex(x1)-to-PCI adapter to make it work.
Once I booted the new machine up, the Device Manager showed the yellow exclamation on the port number and gave the following message:
"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)"
One site that I checked said that a BIOS update might help, but I checked Dell's site to see update specifics on the last version of BIOS they did, and it didn't address anything like this. Is there an adjustment I can make in the Resources tab of the port's device properties that will make this work?
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
