data card not working

Compaq presario ce40 108... / 2008

Specs: Windows XP
I purchased Compaq Presario CQ40 Notebook / laptop and installed both XP + Vista operating systems. I purchased Idea Net Setter data card. XP is unable to detect the same, while the Vista is detecting and operating very well. OS has been formatted twice, but, my problem was not solved. But, this data card is working well in other systems with XP OS both in laptops and desktops. I could not find out the reason for failure. A number of engineers tried to solve the problems, but showed their unability. I further humbly request that would you please give me the solution for this problem without asking me to format again.

I am no expert, so I had to search the WEB to get information on your Idea Net Setter data card.

What Windows Updates does your XP have ?????

My web search says data card needs
XP (Service pack 2 and above)

Just to comment.
Recently I purchased the TurboTax software program. When
trying to install the program, a message came up saying ---
"your XP does not have SP2"
End of story, end of a TurboTax customer (waste of money)
Also to say that your data card is a USB device that comes with a built-in bootable application.
May be that card will not work without SP2

I agree with Chuck 2 - the card made by an Indian company may very well be a lemon. Look HERE to read complaints filed by many of your fellow Indians.

By the way ...

would you please give me the solution for this problem without asking me to format again

For your info - no one here would advise someone to format & reinstall Windows just because some hardware is not working correctly.
