Dell Inspiron Shuts Down After Trying to Connect to Wireless Network

I have a new Dell Inspiron 1200 and a 1350 WLAN PC card. I have installed the hardware and software exactly as the reference guide told me, but everytime I try to connect to the network (the network is fine; my friend's computer works), my computer shuts down with a blue screen and in white lettering it says the following: ======================== A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or softwre manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If the problem continues, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000008, 0x00000000)

I had a similar issue with my pc using a certain pci wirless adaptor. Turns out the card had issues with the VIA chipset on my motherboard. I changed adaptors and things worked fine. Could have nothing to do with your problem but perhaps a thorough googling might shed some light.
