hi, i have this OEM 3945abg mini pci-e wireless card that came from an IBM x61 notebook.
i want to use this card on my other notebooks, but unfortunately , i encountered with a problem. windows keeps saying that "device cannot start (code 10)", and after googling around, i found out that IBM OEM wifi cards won't work on a "non-IBM" notebook.

is there a workaround on this one? can i change the PCI-ID of the wifi card? how? please help. thanks

I think it is more that the notebook you are using is limiting the models that can be used. See this thread:
