Thanks. Let's see what happens when I drill out the old card.

Thanks, that'd be great.

I'll need to drill out the old card and I don't have the tools for that at the moment. Would it be too much to ask (if you still have your old card) to plug in your old card and see whether your computer, too, doesn't even get to the BIOS?

comment How to get a stable WLAN-connection with a Lenovo x121e?
Thanks. I'll have to find some tools for that, then. Curious that a WWAN card is allowed to go there, but a WiFi card doesn't even make it to the BIOS...

The BIOS didn't complain, I don't even get to the BIOS. (I posted my problem in the link above.) The computer is on, the screen is black, the fan is turning, but nothing is happening... I have an AMD model as well. Maybe I need to buy the 6200 instead?

I tried the same thing with an Intel Centrino 6205 card without any success. Do you have the AMD or the Intel model? What version is your BIOS?

@clemej Yes, the slot is intended for PCIe WWAN cards.

Hm... more productive to troubleshoot a bad card than to try to get working a brand new wireless card. That doesn't sound very hopeful. Anyway, thanks for your help.

Someone used a Intel Centrino 6200 without any problems (post linked both in my question and the above comment), although it is not listed on the page you linked to...

I tried the spare slot with pin 20 taped over (I only have ordinary sello tape atm), but still the computer doesn't turn on. That is, I don't even get an error: The computer is on, the fan turns, but I can't even get to the BIOS.

Thanks. I chose the card because a very similar model had been used without any problems by someone in this post.

That done, I still need to be able to turn on the computer with the new card in place, which is not possible at the moment...
