I just bought a usb 2.0 2 port USB PCMCIA card. When I try to install it into the slot, my laptop automatically shut off. I think it has something to do with the driver, but I'm not sure what. It came with a cd with the driver on it, which I believe I've loaded correctly (pretty simple), but after I shut down, put in the card, then start up, just as windows is starting everything will shut off. I can go into safe mode and it will go in fine, but as I mess around with enable and disabling drivers, it will again shut off. Please help!
