    Hi all!

    First post here n im drastically in need of help. I've already done a lil digging around and tried different things but i still cant get rid of it.

    Im in australia and a lot of people are buying the wireless broadband packs from telstra. I install it and everything goes fine, but as soon as you start the registration process i get the bsod with this error:

    STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000006, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF73E7BBE)

    NDIS,sys - Address F73E7BBE base at F73C5000, DateStamp 41107EC3

    From what i gather its got to do with the drivers and the IRQ service. This wireless card uses the PCI slot in the side of the laptop. Its a compaq Presario 900.

    I've tried uninstalling the port drivers, installed older ones and newer ones, other network cards but i dont get anything.

    One thing of note was the wireless networking DLink card i put in did not pickup the router in the room... i tried a netgear one but the same thing happened. It could see the network but just couldnt connect to it. Just get a msg saying its connecting then it disappears with the entire "available networks" list.

    Shoopid XP... ACPI crap

    Im thinking it could be hardware related rather then driver related but plz, will appreciate any help anyone can give me.

    thanks guys!

    Anyone?

    I've already prepared the customer as to the possibility of a replacement HDD and a fresh copy of XP, but i dont really want to do it unless i have to.

    Can anyone help?

    Hard to give you much advice -- ndis.sys is definitely network related.

    Could be a hardware or driver issue associated with the networking card.

    In some cases it can also be caused by 3rd party firewall issues.

    Try connecting directly to the modem and not using a router.

    Remove any 3rd party firewall for now and just run with the built-in XP firewall.
