Intel PRO/wireless not enough resources (code 12)

By andy.j ·
Im having a problem with the wireless on my toshiba M40. I had the mother baord and hard drive replaced and everything worked fine for about 2 weeks then my wireless stopped working. In the device manager it has a (!) next to it and says there are not enough free resources (code 12). The generic card bus is also in the same situation. I have tried removing the hardware and restarting to re install and also going to microsoft web site which says you can re allocate resources in the device manager by changing to view by resources mode, but in this view I can't identify any hardware as they all just have code as names.

Any help would be appreciated.

That means that the driver isn't installed for that device. Drop in your Recovery CD and right click on the missing item and chose Install Driver and allow the system to do the rest.

If this will not work take the computer back to the place that repaired it and demand to get it fixed properly this time.

Drivers installed correctly.

Thanks for the suggestion

The error is that there are not enough resources. I have re installed the drivers and re installed the hardware. Searched for updated drivers and everything. (I did try your suggestion also but the system restoration DVD had all the info packed into a couple of files on it, no driver folder)

What happens if you right click on the Device

Select Proprieties and then Resources do you have an option there to manually change the settings of the IRQ and DMA used?

That's about all that I can think of short of performing a new install again. But if you are unable to make it work you may be able to do an In Place Install and get it working again by following the directions here


That may work and if it doesn't I would be saving all my data and getting in contact with the place that did the repair as this is not satisfactory.
