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!!

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
