Inspiron 8000 pcmcia problem??

I've got a rather frustrating problem if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated I've tryed 3 pcmcia cards on my i8k all 3 of them give me device timeouts (netgear fa410tx, smc 8040, and a linksys card) all of which are on the hardware compat list except the smc card which i read somewhere is supported so i gave it a try. Anyway I added pccard_enable="YES" pccardd_ifconfig="DHCP" tryed ifconfig_ed1="DHCP" for fun and i tryed changing the irq port with the -i flag for pccardd_flags and editing pccard.conf. Nothing seems to work I have miibus compiled in the kernel all the proper drivers all 3 of the cards are recognized at boot however i recieve the infamous ed1: device timeout message. The cards work on linux and windows maybe I'm missing something I have never dealt with pcmcia cards until now. I googled for 2 days and asked on numerous irc channels. Am I missing something? It seems to be a rather common problem with all the results from my google searchs. I've also disabled everything in my bios still nothing I've tryed using 4.9, 5.2rc2 and -current with  the same results. Someone please help me! I keep hearing its an irq conflict my card gets set to irq 10 its seems even when i try to change it..btw all tryed device.hints and kernel.conf. 
Thanks -Paul
