|Nope, clean boot didn't stop it. A good thought, however. I was almost certain that might stop the crashing. I was pretty sure no background programs were interfering with it.|
I could go through the entire list of services one by one, and it would STILL keep crashing. The only service that would stop the crashing if I had it turned off would be Wireless Zero Configuration because, after all, then the wireless card would be disabled, and then we're at the beginning again.
I just love computers, man. Always working in circles until I finally fix whatever's wrong with them.
I'm gonna try a couple more things. First, I'll try plugging in my wife's wireless USB adapter, which actually causes problems of it's own when other things are plugged into the same USB controller. Hopefully I fixed that...keeping my fingers crossed.
If no crash occurs when her wireless adapter is plugged in and connected to the internet, then I have a couple options. Buy one of my own or maybe shuffle around all my PCI devices. And if it still crashes, well...I guess I'll bang my head against a brick wall and get drunk.
Total insanity. I've had my wife's wireless USB adapter plugged in for about 45 minutes now, had a game running for about that long, and NO CRASH!
I guess I've singled out the cause of the problem.
Now it's just a question of WHY my wireless card is doing this and how I can fix it.
