    Exactly the same problem with a new HP Pavilion a6228x running MS Vista Home Premium. Setup was easy using the downloaded driver as per instructions (not using the setup CD). But system hangs on blue startup screen if Linksys WUSB300N is plugged in. Unplug it and the system will restart.

    Same problem here. The HP vista system is blue screen when booted with WUSB300n adapter. Also, when the computer wakes from sleep the network is not working.

I ripped a CD and am trying to burn it, but the drive keeps ejecting my CD as unacceptable. What do you suggest? I am inserting a Maxell CD-R Music disc.

    Ensure that in the bios the boot order does not include the USB.

    Is the usb adpter a wireless adptr, thumb drive, or other device such as printer? If its not a wireless adpter for internet use and removing it from the bios doesnt fix the problem....try switching to another usb port on the PC. if that doesnt solve it. then either take it to a pc repair service or just leave the usb adpter unpluged till start up is complete

When my wusb300n is plugged in to my computer it makes my computer take up to 5 or 6 min to boot. It will sit on the screen where you can go in to setup forever. If I unplug my adapter it immediatly boots....

the reason it does that is because your pc is attempting to boot from usb there is a way to solve that issue without having to disconnect the wusb and here is how...restart your pc as soon as it comes on enter the bios setup by pressing the button it tells you to usally esc or f1 f2 or 10 once you enter the bios setup search for the boot section and disable boot from usb or move it down on the order which should be set to number 1 cd/dvd number 2 hard disk and so on.. then after you have completed this save and exit it then should reboot and have no problems with the wusb

Blue screen

Check booting in other computer, this will show if CD faulty. If not, CD drive may be faulty. If CD not faulty & can boot from USB drive you can copy CD to USB drive and install that way.

Missing boot manager

go to system bios (using F10 key on the start "Commanly") then press F9 for restore defaults, and insert the Bootable Vista DVD into the drive, it will solve your prob.. otherwise in bios mode make sure that all the drives (HDD & CD/DVD Rom) are properly installed.
good luck

File header checksum does not match computed one. ???

You have one or more critical corrupted file/s which prevents the laptop from booting up.
To get the laptop operating again, you need to insert the Windows Vista CD and do a Repair and if this fails you need to install Vista again.

Wont connect to wireless network

first, I suggest trying a different USB port. remove the adapter and the icon should disappear, so if the usb port is loose or broken that may be why its acting like that. Plug it into a different port and try it. You may have to reinstall the driver for the next usb port depending on your system
