My WinXP Pro was 100% stable until I installed D-Link wifi card. Random freeze ups. Card is DWL-G510. I've concluded it is their software. Airplus, airlink, etc.
I have the exact same problem in the exact same computer,, when I put my "Windows ME" hard drive into it,,and boot up.. before the D-link wifi software,, it was 100% stable. After D-link installed? FREEZE-ups.
(I have "swappable" harddrives).
The motherboard is NOT cheap. Quality- ASUS A7V333 (with RAID). AMD 1600+. 768MB ram, 2 harddrives. 2 Optical drives. ATI Radeon 9600PRO.
I unistalled the D-link garbage,,but only gained 75% of my old stablity.. it still have freeze ups. No errors, etc.
If we can't find the fix.. I'll have to format and reload 2 sets of Windows on 2 harddrives..update them,,etc.. this should cost D-Link about $400 for my lost time. I will NEVER buy another D-Link, or take one if given as a gift.
I downloaded a Linux Live CD (600MB)..put it on bootable CD..took OUT my harddrive,,and booted Linux to get back on the web and in here.
Linspire or Knoppix and/or Gnoppix seem ok. Knoppix freezes on my odd system..too many PCI cards. Vid capture, Satellite tuner, etc.
If anybody knows the fix, email me at Yahoo.com I am " Jtcar46 ".
D-Link sucks D-Link problems D-Link wireless problem Freeze crash.
