W510 w/WinXP, device manager reports issue w/1394 Net Adapter (error code=10)

I recently reimaged a brand new W510 w/WinXP w/SP3 & installed Lenovo Toolbox utility. Which immediately identified an issue w/the 1394 Net Adapter in Device Manager. Looking at the Device Status (details) it states "The Device Cannot Start (code 10)" and suggests reloading the drivers. I've tried updating them using the UPDATE DRIVER button and searching the web but it states Windows cannot find a better match then the one I have. I've copied the driver from a 2nd WinXP machine (nic1394.sys). I've installed all of the Microsoft updates (for Critical Software and Hardware). Installed the Lenovo Driver Update utility & installed all available driver updates and flashed the BIOS and nothing has resolved it.  I've run the full Lenovo toolbox diags and everything passes (including the 1394 adapters) I've also sent the PC into Lenovo for repair and they indicate everything tests fine as well..

Question, does anyone one know if this device is compatible w/WinXP ? Any other suggestions ?

 

Thanks,

Hey Acekc77,

 

I know you tried updating though System Update but did you try to uninstall it and manual install the driver? This can sometimes work as system update can be behind or not install the right driver. We could also have a driver version compatibility issue. If you could post back we will continue to work with you to find a solution.

 

Here is a link to your driver page:

Best Regards,

Re: W510 w/WinXP, device manager reports issue w/1394 Net Adapter (error code=10)

Hey guys,

 

A 1394 Net Adaptor Connection is basically Win2k/XP's way of telling you that you have a Firewire interface installed in your system.

IEEE 1394 is more commonly known as Firewire and is mostly used to connect to peripherals such as digital cameras, camcorders and some external hard drives. It can also be used to network two Firewire-equipped systems together, achieving 12.5 to 50MBps transfer speeds. Firewire networking use is limited because of its 15ft cable length limitation.

 

If you Google the internet for Net Adaptor drivers you can find tons of information on what steps you can take to fix the issue. 

 

If you have any other questions please post back.

 

Best Regards,

 

Hiro
