Network card causing instability

  twigglet 21:52 19 Aug 2003

My network card used for broadband input is causing my computer to crash. I have given it its own IRQ number and installed a different card. I now get a blues screen message IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. I am running windowsXP 512RAM AMD Athlon 2200+. Any ideas but in simpleton language please

check your network card driver make sure it is installed properly and is the correct one for your os

I had this on a friends computer caused no end of problems
eventually began to suspect ram problem

to clear it i had to install win 98 and then upgrade to xp pretty weird

do a search for the error on yahoo or google and you will come up with loads

Thanks. It seems that JJCUK could be right. On one occassion on reporting error to microsoft, it recommended running windiag. The standard test showed no errors but the extended test showed errors using ERAND on DDR2 on 1911d8cc and 1fff11cc, which means nothing to me other than there might be a memory failure.

JJCUK was right it was a RAM problem. I used microsofts diagnostic tool. Had RAM replaced no problem any more
