Inserting PC card NIC, system stops

I have a problem with a PC card Ethernet interface.

When I insert the PC card to my laptop,
the system hungs and makes no response.
When I eject the card,
the system starts again and works fine.
 -> insert the card
 -> eject the card

Of course, I cannot use this card for network interface.
(ifconfig command does not show this interface.)
Are there some workarounds to work this card correctly?
