Hello everyone, I am new to this site. I have searched everywhere on google and not found an answer to my solution so I decided to create a post.
I have formatted my desktop PC 7 times and installed a fresh version of windows XP SP2 each time. The newly formatted system seems to work perfectly. However, as soon as I install the driver for RTL8185 (a wireless card) from the Realtek website, after installation, my system crashes. The system freezes for hours and does not unfreeze. during this freeze, the hdd light is not lit, sometimes I even have problems to get pass the welcome screen.
I am not even connected to the internet, yet after installing the driver my computer just freezes the only way to unfreeze is to restart my computer which I do from holding down the on/off button for 3-5 seconds.
I have SKY broadband and they provided me with a sagem wireless router. I know this works because i can connect to the internet perfectly on my laptop
However, I can access safe mode and the computer runs normally!
looking forward to your help, thanks in advance
Please ask me for any information that I have not/forgotten to provide.
I have 2GB ram and 3.20Ghz Dual core processor with an Asus P5VDC-MX motherboard, nvidia geforce 6200 graphics card.
