  1. i goofed i went to install a links wierless model wmp54g, but i didn't read instructions like one should. So i installed the card first. after making sure the power cord was unplugged and grounding myself to the machine I installed the card. then i notice that you where suppose to do the cd first. but that was after i had tried rebooting the computer and got nothing but beeps and no start up seqence. after searching for the bootable cd i tried again and got the same response. help.

    Hi

    your card hasnt screwed the machine, something you did when installing it has, go back inside the case and remove the card and see if it works, if so the card is faulty.

    If not check things like cables and plugs are all secure and then try again.

    regards

    Thanks, but I did that. Found out the slot I was putting the card in was bad. Remove an old modem and installed it that slot and everything work. But it was too late to save everything on the drive.
