    You need to take the laptop to a repair center and have it repaired. Dropping laptops is never a good thing!

    lol im a computer tech who repairs computers for a living. i know its a hardware issue. nothing to do with software. i was just wondering becuase i dont know everything, that maybe any of u guys ran into that problem before. but yea everytime i plug it in it makes the bloop noise and then goes crazy as if its trying to find the card and then just freezes. im just too poor to get a new one =-(. thanks for your reply

    You may be able to replace the PCMCIA assembly on the laptop. Hopefully you haven't damaged the motherboard... You repair computers and you're broke... Boy, do I understand that! I am lucky to make $50 to $100 profit on each repair or new build. I am retired and I work out of a room in my home

    Dazzle has a very high failure rate with many of their products... That is a typical result of a defective unit.

    Yes. It sucks even more when you look at all you have invested in tools, parts, softrware, manuals. downloads. And the Gummint guys are getting $78,000 a year
