Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Now that I have the WPCI810GP 802.11g/b (51803000100) Wireless Adapter installed, after I start up the computer, between 0-10 minutes the Blue Screen of Death (Hardware Malfunction - Call your hardware vender for support - The system has halted) appears, throwing away anything that I was working on and shutting my computer (XP) down.
I tried reinstalling and switching the adapter to a different port.
How can I prevent this, or should I just go buy a brand-new adapter?
1. Uninstall the drivers for the card.
1.5 Turn pc off.
2. Unplug the card.
2.5 Turn on pc. Make sure the pc does not detect the wireless adaptor.
3. Turn pc off again.
3.5 install adapter then turn pc back on.
4. When windows tells you it has found new hardware, click the option to specify your own location for the dirver, then point to the cd that came with the card.
If all this still does not fix it, the you know its the adapter and to take it back.
This same solution works for any new card added to a computer. I have seen this same problem with the old scuzzy cards at work.
