Hello.
I'm about to freak out and desperatley need anybody's help.

heres the story :
I recently bought myself a modem for an isdn connection :
USB V.90 Pocket Modem 1456VQE-R3. It came with its standard drivers and installed smoothly.

Now when I'm on the net the pc crashes randomly. (I leave it running on its own overnight and it happens, but also when I try play online multiplayer games as soon as it makes a connection to the game it crashes)In order to trace the error I unticked the option for auto restart.

In the blue screen this is the error I get :

***STOP : 0X 0000007E (0 x 0000005, 0 x F84F6097, 0 x F8B70C2C, 0 x F8137092C)

*** linkisdn.sys - Address F84F6097 base at F84A9000, DATESTAMP 3b418f01

Then I rebooted and checked out the event log :

I had three errors logged :

Quick questions

a) Have you uninstalled the driver and re-installed it and still it happens ?

b) can you restore your computer to some earlier days and then install the driver ?

c) Have you checked at the webpage of the modem company and look for Faq's and known issues abt the modem ?

d)Are you sure all the event ID's are concerned with the same driver problem ? best way is to clear all the event ID's and check once you get this problem

What o/s? Try removing the modem & reinstalling it after rebooting.  Try running the xp recovery from the boot cd.

Here's some links to check about stop errors"

Bring the modem back and get an external Serial modem. The external USB modems are not very good, and the fact that you are going through USB may be causing your problems.
No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
