    Like it says, every time I stream video online, it may work for 2 seconds or it could work for like ten minutes, but pretty soon I get a blue screen error. Often times it is this error:
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    while other times it just says STOP with assorted data values, I looked at the most recent one right before this post, and here it is exactly...
    NETIO.SYS - Address 87E1185E base at 87E0F000, Datestamp 47919103

    Now, I have recently installed my new video card, a Radeon HD 4550, and thought it might be that. So I uninstalled the card and reinstalled it again, but the problem persists. I have looked up the netio.sys errors and have found that there is some hotfix available that may perhaps help me, though I haven't tried it. Should I do this?

    I know this isn't too much information to go off of, but streaming video is my life, and I guess I'm praying someone has had the same problem and knows the fix.

    Anyways, if anyone knows anything I should try to fix this, please please let me know, Thanx

    Identify what network card you are using and then get the latest drivers for it.

    If this do not work do the same for your motherboard, and also be sure you download and install the latest drivers for your graphics card (not using any cd that came with it).

    If you are overclocking anything try not to.

    Just to rule out the problem test your memory -> www.memtest86.com

    The hotfix I found was this one: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929547/en-us - and it seems its not excactly the problem you're having since you're experiencing bsod and the hotfix mentions only a 15sec delay of some sort.

    Also be sure you're on the latest Service Pack level for your OS.

    Verify that you do not have more than one firewall/antivirus program. Also, try to disable your firewall/antivirus to check if that helps.

    If you are connected by wireless, try wired and vice versa (to see if it works with one of them, and not the other)

    Check your Network Connection Properties and try to disable any items you do not need (like QoS, Low-level network analyzers etc.)
