If I had to hazard a guess it would be a problem with Windows. As soon as it sees any thing Wifi it borks out. Is this Windows 10? Does disabling LAN, not uninstall, in Device Manager make a difference?
You can confirm if this is hardware by booting a live linux distro with the Wifi card attached. Burn Mint Cinnamon to a DVD by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. After burning the iso boot the DVD to see if the burn was good. Don't enter anything until you are at the Mint desktop. At the desktop shutdown, install the Wifi care, and reboot Mint. At the desktop, if you get that far, Mint will detect your Wifi networks if the kernel has the appropriate driver. Even if Mint does not detect your Wifi you could assume the problem is Windows as Mint successfully booted with the Wifi card installed.

Sorry, I misunderstood. Is this something that just happened?
Maybe the PSU? But it's very strange the computer boots fine with the SSD and HDDs unless a Wifi card or Wifi USB dongle is attached.
I would attempt to boot linux with the SSD and HDDs installed with the Wifi card attached.
