While working on Matlab yesterday (few other browser, office, etc. windows open in the background), my computer suddenly jumped to the only thing short of smoke that still really scares me regarding computers - the BSOD. The error message says "DRIVER-IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL;" the error is at "0x000000D1(0x00008528, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF8303708)" and there's more stuff at the bottom saying, "w22n51.sys - address F8303708 base at F83DF000 datestamp 40054b01." I ran chkdsk, defrag'ed, the usual suspects. It's happened twice since. Can somebody give me a hand?

Cheers,
Becca

Hello eskimokisz...

What is the make and model number of your machine? The file you mentioned is usually associated with wireless network card drivers...particularly where Intel chipsets are involved.

It's an Inspiron 600m. The wireless card is a Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection with a... w22n51.sys driver. [bleep]. Why is it always the wireless card? This card has given me way more trouble than it's worth.

OK. Problem identified. I'm going to see if I can update the driver. Anything else I can do to fix?

Go to the Intel website and download the Intel Pro Wireless drivers for your card. Make sure the version is at least the 9.x series. Install the drivers and reboot.

Does this help?
