    Hi, suddenly, my BT PC Card stop working. The error on Device Manager is
    "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". I have tried to re-install the device
    from Device Manager and also completely re-install its software (came with
    the box).

    But, if I just change my computer's name, reboot, then the device work
    again. But not forever. After 8 hours my computer turned off or hibernated,
    then the error back again.

    What could be the problem then?

  2. In most cases, this is a device diver issue. Right click on the device and
    click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the wireless. Or go to the
    website of the device's manufacturer, and check the up-to-date drivers. Or
    this search result may help too.
