A very odd one this. Not sure why this would happen. It could be that a driver or service is causing the problem when it loads. Do you get the same when you start in Safe Mode?

I would try enabling boot logging from the startup menu (F8 on boot). Once it reboots, allow to go in to Windows (remove the aerial) then look for the ntbtlog.txt file in the windows directory. This may shed some light on where the problem occurs.

Is the wi-fi card new, or was that always there? If it is new, then I think it is faulty.

Two questions.

Did you try another PCI slot ?

Did you install the software,then shutdown,put in the
new card then reboot,or did you do like I did and put
the card in first?

You should install the software before the hardware.

So, uninstall all instances of the WIFI and start over.

Note:If this is a notebook please ignore my first question
about the PCI slot.

It does not appear to be a notebook but,just covering
my Bo-Stinker! COL
