Toshiba laptop bootup / network adapter problem

Hi everyone. I'm new here and posting with a problem.Can anybody help me?

When I boot up my Toshiba A75-s209 laptop I get a message showing
"Resource Conflict - PCI Network Controller in Slot 03 Bus:01, Device:0B, Function:00".
The computer will then only start in safe mode.

I have tried system restore to a previous time no avail.

I have removed the network card from device manager and let windows redetect it on reboot, but the computer freezes as soon as windows detects it.

If I disable the network controller and then restart, the message still shows, but I can boot in normal mode and everything works apart from no network. If I then enable the network controller the computer immediately freezes.

The computer is 10 months old and this problem started for no reason (no knocks or drops) nor have I added hardware or software recently, I see on a web search other people with the problem but none have posted the solution.

Any assistance greatly appreciated

Steve

Bought at J&R in New York City Jan 2005.

Sent to Toshiba in Madrid for power socket repair in September. Worked for a while but same power supply fault reappeared.

Sent to Toshiba repair in Orlando in November. The very helpful repairman said power supply was a known issue with this model, as was a problem with the top cover. He swapped out both parts, and it worked perfectly till 2 days ago.

If the network adapter is broken then I take it that is another trip to the repair shop. I live in Spain and find Tosiba madrid not well informed, not to mention they make me pay €60 shipping costs
