There may be something wrong with the card if you say that the computer makes a noise and then shuts down. There could be a dead short in the card someplace that would cause an imediate tripping of the power supplies circut protection.
Are you sure that your putting it in a pci slot ? You want to make sure that your not putting it into a Pci-e slot.

Thanks Inzone for your response, I am sure I am using PCI slot only. I discussed this with Netgear, they say 4 GB RAM is a problem in my computer and not only theirs but any adapter / USB adapter will not work with 4 GB RAM. I am bit surprised with this answer. Please let me know if this makes some logic or advice me a better adapter whichcan work with 4 GB RAM. Thanks again for your help. Since my adapter is working in my other computer with 2 GB RAM and old P4 processor so I don't anticipate any problem with the adapter.

I think you got a runaround answer from someone that wasn't interested in helping you.
