Either the driver is not installing correctly, or the card is defective.

Try manually changing the driver to a different one.

Did you get it fixed - I have the same problem "This device cannot start (Code 10)"
I have the latest driver still doesn't work (un-installed the old one and installed the new one XP SP3) I tried 2 brand new cards both of them are failing to start (unlikely this is hardware problem) Model 533AN_MMW Intel WiFi Link 5300.

got it fixed ,

what u need to do is download the latest sw w/ drivers pack from intel site its like 12.3.4.9 version
after u install the intel sw in the dir in prpgram files/intel/wifi/drivers u will find 2 exectuteables u have to run them to make the intel sw recognize the card(before u do that i recommend writing down version nuber of the current driver and then deleting the card from ur list in the hw list in my computer/propreties)

the nature of the problem we are facing is that the different version of sw and driver dont work together and for some reason the driver doesnt updtate during sw install , u need to do it manually

good luck

There are two versions of the card. One is for generic PCs, like the UX, and the other is custom for IBM and Toshiba laptops. The custom version accommodates oddities in the IBM and Toshiba BIOS images, but makes it incompatible with "normal" machines. I think it has something to do with the I/O mappings.

In any event, the same thing happened to me, and you'll need to exchange for the normal version.

I'm having this problem with my new WiFi Link 5100 card but when I try to download the ProSet drivers, it doesn't actually start (the program starts but then closes suddenly). Any advice you could offer or did I buy a card that won't work in this system?

Sorry for reviving a 3-year old thread.

1) Make certain that you didn't buy a card for HP / Lenovo. Those cards usually are "Whitelisted" & won't work with anything else.
2) I haven't had much luck with intel's sw of late. It's supposed to do a "silent" install but it seems most of the time it just stops. I can't get any useful driver files when I try to unpack intel's exe- instead I look for any pc the uses the same card (such as my Sony VGN-FW375J). Get sony's latest driver for your os from sony esupport. Use uniextract to unpack the exe- that removes the model check sw. In an folder after unpacking, you'll find the driver & its setup exe. You should be able manually install the drivers if you want.
