What does this warning mean?[Intel(R) PROSet: Resources are not available]


On my XP machine I periodically get a warning box regarding Intel(R) PROSet that says "Resources are not available". I click OK (the only option) and the box disappears. I don't notice anything "wrong" with the computer.

What is this warning trying to tell me, and how do I fix whatever's wrong?

Do you have an Intel wireless adapter? Highly likely, since the Intel PROSet wireless software usually comes with their adapters.

Check here to see if your particular wireless adapter is supported. Then uninstall and reinstall the latest version of Intel's PROSet Wireless Software on your PC.

Here's what my computer has (from Belarc Advisor report):

Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
Network Card MAC Address: 00:13:20:0E:84:F9

I don't use wireless. I have an RJ45 cable from the computer to my DSL modem, and then a cable from the modem to Verizon, the DSL provider.

Any errors in Device Manager, regarding your network card?

I won't be at that computer until tomorrow; I'll check device manager then. But the network card is working fine; I've had no trouble working online.

The "resources not available" message is due to a missing or corrupted .CPL file fot the intel pro set net card. It should be in /windows/system32 directory. When the pro set software is installed, it installs drivers and a control panel extension (cpl) fot the net card. Reinstalling the Pro set software will put back or replace the CPL file in system32 and the error message will go away. Check your drivers cdrom and reinstall the software.

Thanks. The computer came with all hardware, and XP, installed. I have a Dell reinstallation CD, but it says on it that it doesn't include drivers. Do you think the cpl file will be on it? If not, do you think I could get the drivers and cpl files from Intel? Or would I have a better chance with Dell (the warranty has expired)?

Hello all

Tony is correct about the CPL. I have seen this error more than once with the Intel Pro nic.

You say you see this
Quote:
I periodically get a warning box
When you see it, is everytime you "periodically" go into Control panel.

And as Tony says the fix is reinstalling the driver. But mess that up and then you do have a problem!

You have full control of this device via Device manager and Local Area connection. It is causing no problem in the operation of your NIC or computer.

Unless you are very experienced, I would leave it alone!

It is better to see a little ole message ocasionally than to have the network card not operating at all.

Mike

It's a Dimension 4700.

I'm a little worried about what Mike said. But I've updated device drivers before. As I recall, I go to the device properties, click on Update Drivers, folow the prompts, locate the downloaded drivers, and let it install. Does this sound right?

Don't worry so much about my warning. I was going by your experience level as posted.

If someone like Tony will help that should be no problem.

Mainly what I am saying is that the issue is pruely cosmedic and there is no real problem with the Intel Pro.

Thanks; that's a relief.

I agree with your "if it ani't broke, don't fix it" approach. However, since I first posted, I did experience a problem, although I don't know if the NIC has anything to do with it. I installed a new antivirus program (CA's 2008 Security Suite) and have been unable to enable real time monitoring. Everything else works OK -- scans, email protection, etc. Just not real time monitoring.

Do you think the NIC could be affecting this?

If not, I'll try again to get real time monitoring to work, and if it won't. I'll try another AV program, like Grisoft's AVG, which I've heard is a good one.

Nope!

Right off I would say it is related to CA or your former Virus scanner is not completely un-installed.

NIC would have no bearing on if Virus scanner would run resident or not!

The only thing your Intel Pro is saying is that the little Icon for Intel Pro is supposed to be in the conttrol panel but is missing. That is all!

You have full control of the Intel Pro NIC thru the Device manager and Local Area connection Icon.

My System
download the Intel driver for your Dimension 4700 here
1. click + next to Network
2. in 3rd row Intel Driver click on Download Now.
3. Save the download to Desktop.
4. close browser and any other opened windows.
5. double click R78727.exe and follow the prompts.
The files should be extracted to C:\Drivers or C:\Dell\Drivers and the Intel install should start automatically.

Many thanks! You're absolutely right (not that there was any doubt). I uninstalled and then reinstalled the AV program, and it works fine, with real time scanning.

As for the NIC, I can live without the little icon. As you previously said, the warning box only (so far) pops up on a re-boot, and when Control Panel is opened. Not that annoying, but I've downloaded the Dell driver, for future use if things get worse.

Thanks again to you and Tony.
