HP ProBook 6550b & Wireless Card

Hello People,

 

I wonder if anyone can help, I have just brought a HP ProBook 6550b and purchased a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 Wireless card, when I install this and boot my laptop up I get a System Halt message saying to remove the wireless card!!!

 

But when looking at the quick specs its lists as being a card which I can install?

 

Any ideas why this doesnt want to work!!

Hi:

 

If you didn't get the card with the HP part number on it, that is your problem. The card MUST be made for a HP computer, no exceptions.

 

If you live in the USA, the card needs to have this part number on it:   518434-001

 

Please read the service manual, Chapter 3 for other countries the above part number works for.  Most everywhere else uses 518434-002
