i ordered the same card you have a few weeks ago, and have yet to get it to work with my laptop. I found this thread looking for help on google, so maybe you can help me out.
I don't really even know where to start, it seems my laptop doesn't recognize it. I plug it in, no pop ups saying detected new hardware, and no apparent changes in device manager. If i try installing the drivers from the cd it came with, it says the hardware can't be found.
Am i doing something wrong?
Try the card out on another laptop, if it still doesnt work, you probably have a bad card and need to send it back or ask for a replacement. If it works on another laptop, you might need to play around with the bios/OS or even power settings to get it to detect (some laptops turn off features to save battery life)
I have now ordered 2 cards from these guys (for another friend who wanted to do his own). Both work flawlessly.
