How to Install a PCMCIA Card

There are three components required to set up a PCMCIA card. If you follow these general instructions you will have a good chance that installing your new PCMCIA card will be easy and trouble free. We can not stress the importance of reading the manual of your new PCMCIA card.

1. The first element is the PCMCIA card and service software. This allows your computer to configure its PCMCIA socket and recognize the PCMCIA cards that are plugged in to it. The individual components of PCMCIA software are called drivers. There are usually three to four drivers in PCMCIA software: a socket service driver, a card service driver, a super client driver (this is for generic card configuration), and a resource manager driver. Most computers that have an internal PCMCIA card slot come with this software already installed. Most PCMCIA cards also come with PCMCIA card and service software, so be careful; DO NOT install the card and service software if your computer already has it installed.

To find out if your computer has PCMCIA software installed, read the screen as your computer boots up. If you see messages that refer to Card Services or Socket Service then your computer has PCMCIA card and service software. Also, please check your computers manual. If your computer does not have PCMCIA software you can either contact your computers manufacture to see what they recommend or install the card services software provided with most PCMCIA cards. Windows 95 has a small set of card and services drivers. Please refer to the PCMCIA Plug and Play card wizard.

Once you know that the PCMCIA card and services software are working correctly, you can move on to the second element.

2. Some PCMCIA cards come with proprietary drivers (e.g. PCMCIA sound, networking, and SCSI cards). If the PCMCIA card you're installing has a secondary driver set you must install these drivers. These drivers must be installed in your computer's CONFIG.SYS, after the PCMCIA card and service software drivers. Follow the instructions in the card's manual. Once these drivers are installed you must reboot your computer by either turning the computer off and then on again or press the reset button. Make sure that the PCMCIA card is in the card socket in your computer. As the computer boots, when the PCMCIA card and service drivers are run in your CONFIG.SYS, you will hear a beep. If you hear one beep the PCMCIA card is recognized and all is well, if you hear two beeps the PCMCIA card is not recognized. You must then either re-read the cards manual and re-install the software or contact technical support.

3. The last element in configuring your new PCMCIA card is to install the application software that came with the PCMCIA card. Follow the instructions in the card's manual. Once this step is done you can now use your new PCMCIA card.
