XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation

CPU Intel Core2Duo E6300; M.Board Foxconn P9657AA; OS XP-SP2 I installed the X-Micro driver (from web) for the XWL-11GCAG to a clean XP-SP2 installation, and turned PC off, inserted PCI card and rebooted. XP seizes up during boot and hangs. If I turn PC off and remove card, XP boots correctly. I previously had an AMD Sempron 2800 system which worked very well with the same XWL-11GCAG card. Does anyone know if the XWL-11GCAG and driver is compatible with the E6300 Core2Duo? Many thanks in advance

Re: XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation

I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver. Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.

W200 cause a blue screen

First of all: If you install SP2 you don't have to install SP1 over it. It already did. Secondly, don't install SP3, it destroys Windows XP.
Try reinsalling the PC with SP2, install the drivers and do nothing else, see if that helps.

If not, by all means post back here,

Asus WL-138GE causes system to hang at boot time

Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request. Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver. Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.
