w22n51.sys is probably the IntelĀ® Wireless LAN Driver .

Does that ring a bell ?

Have you recently attempted to install the driver for that ?

If yes, you may not have installed it correctly.

NEVER install drivers for a device when New Hardware Found pops up, unless the directions for installing the device say that's what you are supposed to do.

If that's what you did, un-install the driver for it that's listed in Control Panel - Classic View - Add or Remove Programs, and install it the proper way.
Run the download for it, or if the driver is on a CD or DVD, run the installation program for it from the disk.

If it's a USB wireless adapter, DO NOT plug it in until you have installed the software for it !

Here's the code.
STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x86000000,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xEDC77988)

Yes, that does ring a bell =) but I've not installed anything like that recently, the wireless connection is the same I've been using for a year or so... However, if it continues, should I uninstall it and install it again anyway?

Thanks for the speedy replies =)

Tell us the make and model of your brand name computer, or if you have a generic desktop computer, tell us the make and model of the mboard.

"STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x86000000,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xEDC77988)"

The stuff in the brackets to the right of the STOP error is usually specific to your system and useless.regarding us determining what the problem is caused by.

STOP: 0x000000D1 has this text string associated with it - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

That error can be caused by zillions of things, but one of the most common causes is you have a minor problem with the connection of the ram installed in the ram slots.

Try this first.

See response 2 in this - try cleaning the contacts on the ram modules, and making sure the modules are properly seated:

If this is a brand name computer, consult your User's or Owner's manual if you need to.

If this is a laptop or netbook, you must disconnect the AC adapter from it AND remove the battery BEFORE and while you fiddle with the ram

If that doesn't help...

Do you get this STOP error every time you use the computer (when you boot normally) , or just sometimes ?

If you get it sometimes, then when you don't get it


Start - Run - type.. cmd (press Enter)
Type... CHKDSK /R (press Enter)
Answer yes to the question,
Restart the computer.
The next time Windows begins to load, let CHKDSK run on the partition Windows is booting from

Then try your computer to see if you still get the error

If you get it every time you use the computer (when you boot normally) and if you can't use Windows when you get it.....

Do you have or can you borrow an XP CD ?
Some brand name models came with an XP Re-installation CD when they were new.

Do you see a line while booting that allows you to load the Recovery Console if you press a key ?.

Try loading Safe mode (NOT Safe mode with networking - if your problem is caused by the wireless adapter driver(s) that should work, but the latter will not)

Remove any bootable CDs or DVDs.
Boot the computer, press F8 repeatedly early in the boot sequence.

When the Windows loading choices appears, choose Safe mode
(NOT Safe mode with networking).

Some systems have another use for pressing the F8 key while booting, e.g. for you choosing which device to boot the computer from.

If you get something other than thw Windows loading choices menu, read the screen and find the key that exits the screen - e.g. Esc - press it, then immediately repeatedly press F8.
