Hey there,

A few days ago my computer would bluescreen crash with the problem: irql_not_less_or_equal. I tried to figure out the issue and found that it was my wireless driver/adapter. So i booted my computer in Safe Mode and removed the Intel® PRO Network Adapters and Drivers. I then used my recovery CD to re-install the wireless driver.

I am now able to turn on my computer and use it just fine as long as I keep my wireless turned off. Once I switch on the wireless, it immediately bluescreens.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M30 and am running Windows XP Home Edition 2002, Service Pack 3. I restored my factory defaults a few months back and it was working perfectly, prior to a few days ago.

If any of you have any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

Have you tried updating your wireless card drivers?

This behavior can occur if there is incompatible hardware or an incompatible (or buggy) device driver on your computer.

As suggested above, I would advise you to uninstall the current driver and try a different (newer) version.
