Problem with Sony Vaio PCG-K25

    Hi all! I have the subject laptop and I'm having problems with the internal
    wireless network card. I have the latest driver from Sony website, however,
    Device Manager reports that it cannot find free resources for this device
    and a red X beside it is displayed. It's also intermittent, sometimes it
    works, then all of a sudden I get disconnected from my wireless network and
    the red X appears in device manager stating cannot find free resources for
    this device. Right now, I am using a wireless PCMCIA card with no problems.
    The internal wireless card has a on/off switch and I have turned it off
    because it's not enabled for the reason stated above. The only upgrade I
    have done to this laptop is increase the RAM to 1GB (2x512MB). Any help is
    appreciated. TIA.

    Is the card seated properly (if you can access it, that is)? You can
    also uninstall the card from Device Manager, reboot and let the OS find
    and reinstall the driver.

    I did that about 5 times. Each time WinXP Home found it, installed the
    driver for it and it worked great.....for a couple of minutes..then all of a
    sudden, no connection, red X in Device Manager. I opened the laptop case to
    expose the whole motherboard, blew dust out, just in case dust was keeping
    air circulation at a minimum and generating a lot of heat inside that may be
    causing the problem but still to no go. It is accessible and I did take the
    card out and re-seated it, blew dust off the pins, no luck. Thanks for the
    input though.

    Well, if you have the pcmcia wireless, you might as well remove the
    miniPCI wireless card.
