    STOP (0x0000007e, 0xc0000005 0xf997b8e4)

    that is wat it says. and i looked on google and it says nothing helpful for me.

    its the usual BSOD screen "computer was restarted to protect your computer" etc etc

    then on the middle says STOP (0x0000007e, 0xc0000005 0xf997b8e4)

    then at the bottom its memory dumping

    This is a USB wireless adapter, right?

    Is it powered (from the wall)?

    Also--is there a file name in the BSOD?? like xxxxx.sys ?

    Try to download The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) Primer from here It opens as a pdf file in ur browser. Click on 'save a copy' to save it.

    Aumha Site is also a very good resource, which gives solutions to most BSOD's.
    You can also get your BSOD auto-analysed at the Microsoft® Online Crash Analysis. If you experience a Blue Screen crash event, or Stop error, while using Microsoft Windows, you can upload the error report to this site for analysis.

    More at source.
