wireless mini pci card problem

Hi,
I have a Sony VAIO with windows xp home. It had been having problems with
the mini pci wireless card. In devices it showed code 10. I pulled it out and
put it back in and during boot up I got the error... Conflict PCI Network in
slot 2 BUS 00 Device 07 Function 00. I can boot past that by hitting f1.
Then, I started getting a fatal error memory parity problem. I had recently
installed 1gb x2 kingston and it booted fine a few times, then I got the blue
screen with the conflict error. I pulled out the new memory and installed teh
previous memory and got the same error. I pulled the mini pci card out and it
resolved. I know this might be a duh but could the card have gone bad? Or is
there a way to fix the conflict?
Thanks,
John

Anything can go bad. If the notebook boots fine with it out, that's more
than likely your problem. Have you downloaded and installed the latest
drivers for it? Do you have a different type of card you could try in that
slot to eliminate the slot as being faulty? Or do you have access to another
wireless card to try in it? A quick search on Google for that error puts the
card at fault in most cases.

Hi and thanks, unfortunately I don't have any other mini cards. I guess I can
invest 4.99 on ebay for an attempt at a used mini card. I tried the new
drivers from Sony etc.
Thanks,

newegg has some fairly inexpensive wireless adapters (USB) for about
30.00 incl. shipping.
