  1. Hi there, long time reader first time poster.

    A while ago I started having problems with my computer.
    At certain times I get the following bluescreen:

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x57B0000C, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x9022977F)

    netr70.sys
    - Address 9022977F, base at 90202000, Datestamp 45923fd3

    I have found 3 main reasons that trigger this BSOD:

    - Playing any type of streaming audio/video (like listen to music/watch anime series/...)
    - Download more then 2 things at the same time
    - Startup WoW when it is NOT minimized. (when I minimize it while it is on the loading screen, it starts up)

    It also happend on numerous other occasions, but these are the moments it crashes 90% of the time. It also only occurs when I am connected to the internet!!

    When pressing the "find solution for problems" button after I reboot it says I have a problem with a Ralink Technology product and that I need to update the driver. So I updated the driver for my Raeltek RTL8168C(P) (I guess this is my onboard networkcard?) and rebooted.

    This did not solve anything.

    I then dusted of my pc, defragged everything, put my RAM in different slots, started up with only 1/2 of my RAM inside, ... none of this worked.

    Finaly out of misery I decided "well f*ck it, I'll just format". After formatting it went well for a while, I was able to watch clips online and stuff untill it all of a sudden came back (after a day or 3).

    Please help me!!
    My knowledge of computers is not great enough to fix this problem on my own!!

    Below are my specs, a minidump file (will upload more later) and a HiJack this log.

    Specs:

    Intel(R)Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9300 @2,5Ghz (not overclocked)
    Nvidea Geoforce GTX 260
    4GB RAM

    !! I am connecting to the internet using an old Belkin Wireless G USB adapter: Belkin F5D7050 !!
    Normaly I connect with a Linksys Wireless-N PCI adapter model WMP300N, but the antenna on that one broke. I also had the problem while using that adapter

    Ah crap, should have been in Techsupport.

    Can an admin move this over there? or should I make a new topic?
