Windows XP Stop Screen

Hello I am running windows xp and I keep getting the blue windows stop screen with the following message-

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage.


Technical Information

***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000400, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF73F1A96)


After I get this message and restart windows and do the error reporting it comes back with this following information-

Error Caused By Netgear: No Specific Solution Found

Problem Description

An unknown error occurred in Netgear Ethernet (fa312nd5.sys), created by Netgear.

Has anyone got any ideas? thank you

Do you have a network running or use a network card for connection to the Internet?

Yea I use a netgear network card for broadband internet

reloading or updating (if available) the drivers for the card.

You can do this through Device Manager.

I completly uninstalled the device from my system and installed updated drivers but still have the problem, The card has been working fine for years its only in the last week or 2 that I have hadthis problem

click here for quite a lot of information about this problem. I have to admit, I haven't read it all, but a couple of things that struck me were;

Possibility of memory gone bad (this could also be just worked loose) and

Heat sink fan replacement. Presumably an overheat situation.

Anyway, take a look and see what you think.

If you resolve the problem from this, I'd be glad to know the resolution.

You could also try (again) removing the network card drivers and physically remove the card, then boot the machine. If it starts up OK, it's a fair bet where to concentrate your efforts, though I have to say, if it turns out to be an overheating fault, it could be misleading.
