Computers crashing! "The system has recovered from a serious error."

  1. A while back I installed a network in our small office. In two of the computers I installed Dlink wireless cards Ever since then these two computers have been randomly crashing and restarting with the message "The system has recovered from a serious error."

    One of the machines crashes with a Blue screen of death that has a shutdown timer. However, when it reaches 0 it does not actually shut down. The other computer, the screen just goes black and it reboots automatically.

    Both seem to reboot completely randomly without regard for system activity, sometimes it is weeks between crashes, sometimes it is hours. Very strange.

    Is it possible for a wireless card to cause crashes like this?

    when I report the problem 2 Microsoft I get this page:

    I attached the minidump
