PC crashing when I activate wireless card

  gtuck 18:08 31 Jan 2007

I have a Philips Freeline PC and Windows XP Home Edition with a Ralink RT2500 wireless network card. When I activate the card and try to access my wireless network my PC crashes. It crashes at the point when it asks for the code for the network.

A similar problem occurs when I try to set up an external wireless adaptor (inventel ur054g). In this case I get connected using wireless, but when I reboot the PC, the PC crashes as soon as I log in. To stop crashing during start up I haved to unplug the Inventel adaptor. Once I've succesfuly started the PC, if I plug in the adaptor, the PC crashes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
