I have a problem with my computer crashing, a blue screen comes up with this error:

STOP 0X000000D1(0xF5ED3F74, 0x00000002, 0X00000000, 0xF5E9E8ED)

A3AB.SYS address F5ED3F74 base at F5E6C000, Datestamp 4240dfcc

Beginning dump of physical memory.

This has happened more then once, I shut down the computer and when I reboot I do not automatically connect to the internet, and have to shut down again and end up waiting till the next day because it's so fustrating.
Please help me, and just to let you know I'm not to computer literate.

This error is typically caused by a bad device driver (although it can be caused by other things). Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). See if there are any yellow ! or red X symbols.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Do you have a D-Link wireless card (the file A3AB.SYS is associated with it)? If so, uninstall the drivers/software for it. Then use another computer to download updated drivers from the D-Link website and install them (use a CD or flash drive to transfer it over to your system).

Also, here's a link that I found about this same problem (which uses a different approach to fixing it): http://www.techsupportforum.com/microsoft-...html#post980469
