Blue Screen Error

Hi :hello:
I have a Prolink Hurricane 9601C Modem. It has two LED's indicating Power and Link. As of recently, the Link LED, starts to flash on and off, and all network connections get terminated. The Driver software of the Modem stops responding. I tried to unplug the network cable and re attaching it, but nothing happens.... The System will not shutdown either. Once windows logs off, I get this Blue Screen Error.

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

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1(0x00000072, 0x00000000,0xB68EA7D3)

*** gwausb.sys - adress B68EA47D3 base at B68E4000 date stamp 4333314a3


Can anyone at least tell me why this happens :cry: ..... and a way to fix this if possible. Thanks in advance.

    The last line "gwausb.sys" that is where your problem is , in that whatever it is that sys file is associated with, therein lies your problem, maybe something needs to be reinstalled or removed...:)????
  3. @ Dokk2 : Well the only new hardware and software added was the modem and it's driver... I tried re-installing the driver but the problem still exists. Maybe It's a fault in the modem. What should I do? Should I try to get this fixed or should I move on to a router?? (This issue gave me so much trouble that I'm so sick of modems! :) )
  4. The hotfix in the link I posted above, is for those who have your specific error, and have recently installed a network adapter.
  5. Well it says this,

    "Consider the following scenario:
    You install two network adapters on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP.
    You create a network bridge that uses both of the network adapters.
    You install network driver interface specification (NDIS) intermediate drivers on the computer. "

    well in my case, I don't have any network adapters. I just use a USB modem. Forgive me for saying it so bluntly, but how is this related to my issue when I do not use a network card??
  6. It's built into your motherboard. You installed it, or your modem wouldn't be working.

    If you're hesitant about the hotfix, I would suggest creating a restore point, and then running it. That way, if it doesn't do what you want, you can roll back.
  7. Well in that case, I'd give it a try..... Thanks for describing the issue for me in detail .... :)
