yeah, i know the cardbus is working alright, because I use another card, a pcmcia sound card adaptor (echo layla if anyone's wondering) and it works in both slots just fine

The bios update is about the only thing he has not tried from the suggestions on the d-link website for problems when installing drivers for this particular card. Which he is trying now hopefully it will work.

It does not have a WinFlash utility or option to flash your BIOS while in Windows?

You sure about that model number? I cannot find any info about that model number on Toshiba's website. Perhaps a link to the page with your drivers?

I do know the feeling. My new office machine had a disc error twice in one month, and eventually just had to be replaced. Luckily it was under warranty, but it is a pain to have to go without an office machine for a day.
