Hi,

I bought my computer about 2 months ago. Everything was working fine until Christmas Day. I had a CD-RW drive bought for me for Christmas, so I fitted it and when I switched the computer on, and checked the device manager, my network adapter had a little yellow exclamation mark next to it. Now, I cannot connect to the Internet at all. I'm typing this from my laptop, but I'm only supposed to use this for work.

When I clicked on the adapter, it said Error Code 12, cannot find enough free resources to operate this device. I then uninstalled and removed the drive completely, without any effect. I've scoured Broadcom (the card's manufacturer), Microsoft and Google and came up with no solid solutions.

I don't really know what else I can try. Any help would be greatly apprieciated.

For the record, here's a couple of screenshots of the Device Manager:





Thanks in advance.

It would be a big help if you told us the make/model of the computer in question. Does the problem still exist if you remove the CD you installed?

Oh sorry, I forgot to include the computer name :(

It's a Dell Dimension 5000, the network adapter being used is the Broadcom 440x Integrated Controller. The CD Drive was a Sony CDRW OEM.

Yes, the problem persists after removing the CD drive.

I'd uninstall the NIC drivers and reboot without the new CD drive installed and see if it is able to properly detect the NIC again.
