Can anyone help?

I've just installed a Netgear WG511 wireless card in my new Toshiba Laptop (XP SP2 home) which resulted in a blue screen several hours later with references to 'sysaudio.sys':-

ID: 1003
Source: System Error
Version: 5.2
Message: Error code %1, parameter1 %2, parameter2 %3, parameter3 %4, parameter4 %5.

A blue screen (Stop error) was reported. The message contains details about the error. A matching event with Event ID 1001
might also appear in the event log. This matching event displays information about the specific error that occurred.

User Action
No user action is required.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: System Error
Event Category: (102)
Event ID: 1003
Date: 30/03/2005
Time: 23:02:27
User: N/A
Computer: TOSH
Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 f1f11f58, parameter3 f12b8940, parameter4 00000000.

The error report to microsoft indicated a device driver problem was the cause.

Could updated drivers provide the answer?

Can I add that the previous day I installed AVG antivirus and ADAWARE SE spyware remover.

Any ideas?
