    Hi,

    I just purchased intel Turbo memory card to add to my T61.

    I installed this one in the far left PCI slot, restart my computer, installed the software from the CD, rebooted my computer and noticed that my wireless 3945 abg card was now disabled (so no more Internet). trying to re enable it caused vista to crash...

    after several reboots vista always crashes during the boots once it gets to activate the wireless card.

    I checked the Bios and notice under settings/PCI that all fields are set to IRQ 11, Thinking that would be the issue (irq conflict) i set them all to automatic.. but this did not change the problem..

    I finally removed the Turbo memory card, and my wireless worked again...

    Any idea where the conflict could be ?
    What PCI IRQ setting do you guys have in the BIOS (people with TM and WIFI).

    Thanks for any help...

    Just wanted to know if someone who has Turbo Memory and a wireless 3945abg card could give me his PCI IRQ settings from the BIOS for a T61

    Many thanks in advance

    I suspect the following will correct your problem.

    1. Uninstall Intel Matrix Storage Driver.
    2. Install Intel Chipset INF Driver.
    3. Install Turbo Memory Driver.

    You may to reboot.

    Then reinstall 3985abg driver.

    Look at Step 2 of Stallen's guide.

    Thanks Phil,

    Got it all working fine, Ready Boost and Ready Drive is enabled but now if it's boosting anything that another Point. (won't complain too much for 30$ and hope for better drivers soon.)

    Cheers,
