I have a Dell Latitude D620 with a Dell 1390 wireless lan card, Windows XP Pro.  With help from a forum contributor I found that it (or its process: BCMWLTRY.EXE) was the source of numerous page faults that ultimately caused virtual memory errors.

Using Process Explorer, the offending process was found and terminated.  With respect to this card and/or process, what would be causing the incredibly high number of page faults and high usage of the Page File (virtual memory)?  Thanks,

This may sound simple but have you tried upgrading to the newest drivers for the card? All we run is Dells a mixture of 620's and 630's for a majority of the problems updating the drivers will take care of it.

You may also want to upgrade your BIOS and chipset drivers.

I have installed the latest driver from Dell and was still getting the same behavior.

I have downloaded, but not yet installed the latest BIOS.  I will do that next.  Thanks,
