HI Experts,
I am facing a problem with Nt Driver.The driver is for a PCI card which supports Bus mastering and DMA transfer. It was working perfectly with Pentium 11 Machine with NT4.0 and sp3.
When I Loaded that driver in Pentium 3 with NT4.0 and SP4.
it is giving a Blue screen at start-up.
I tried the following :
new install nt-4.0 with service pack 3 -> not ok
                                service pack 4 -> not ok
                              latest bios version -> not ok

2 different Card -> not Ok
different slots -> not Ok
But when I Uninstalled the Ethernet driver, the driver started up.After a shutdown of the system,and adding an other ethernet pci board,just plugged it in and rebooting the system.The Driver crashes again.
I suspect, it due to some interrupt  problem.
What could be the reason?
Please Help me.. If the information is not enough, I can provide you more.
Thanks in Advance
