My desktop computer frequently turns off and restarts automatically when I download and/or watch videos. I am using a Firefox browser, but the same thing happens when using Internet Explorer. My OS is Windows XP, which is totally up to date.
Could anybody be of some help? Thanks in advance.

Turn off automatic restart and when it happens again, write down the error message:

Go to Start Menu/Control Panel/System/System Properties

Select the Advanced tab.

Uncheck "Automatically restart" option.

From a PM:

On a blue screen i found the following information:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Technical information:

*** STOP: 0X000000D1 (0X751457D4, 0X00000002, 0X00000000, 0XF6C0DCC9)

*** vnet558x.sys

Adress F6C0DCC8 base at F6C09000, dATE sTAMP 3E9E6425
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Could this be an indication for how to solve my problem, and if so, how?
Please help me. Thanks in advance.



Stop 0x000000D1 or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The Stop 0xD1 messages indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.

Possible Resolutions:

* Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering tools.




vnet558x.sys

USB wireless network driver


I believe this is the likely offender

I think so also. Uninstall the Linksys USB software from your system by using the Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs applet.
Then download a new version from Linksys and install it.
