Wireless Network Card.

I am trying to set up a home network. However after installing a Belkin
F5D7000 Wireless Desktop Network Card I get the following error: PCI Simple
Communications Controller Error.. Search For Drivers. I have the
installation disk and I have tried manually pointing the Hardware Wizard to
the file, but it will still not pick up the drivers. I have the latest
drivers from Belkin - no joy.

This is the second card I have tried and after installing into another
computer it worked fine. However the machine I am trying to install onto is
older. Pentium III 450 on a B7XAN Motherboard. O/S Windows xp pro.

I noticed after removing the Network card upon re booting the wizard was
still trying to install the "PCI SIMPLE COMMUNICATIONS CONTROLLER ERROR..
SEARCH FOR DRIVER" even though the card was no longer fitted.

Searching Google for a cure I came across Ms.Public.win200 and a guy with
the same problem said it could be problems with a failed update in Office
2000 ??????? something to do with .dll's.

Help would be much appreciated.
