Windows 7: BSOD installing USB wireless adapter driver

BSOD installing USB wireless adapter driver

I plugged in my NetGear N300 Wireless USB Adapter and it failed to install the drivers automatically. I installed them manually from their website, but got a message from device manager that it was unsigned and would not allow it to work. Therefore I tried installing it again after disabling driver signature enforcement in the F8 boot menu and it worked, but a few seconds later I got a BSOD. The adapter has worked on my other windows computer, so it is not broken.

Whenever the adapter is plugged into this computer, 95% of the time I get a BSOD on the welcome screen. When it is not plugged in, it boots just fine. This issue has happened before when I use to have a wireless card in my pci-e slot, so I'm confused as to why wireless won't work on my computer. I'm assuming it is something driver related or even hardware since I put this computer together myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I attached the dump files and more debug information.

Well you have a Dell OEM_SLP license key on A Retail Gigabyte motherboard, which is illegal.

Xaey, if you will get a legal installation of Windows 7 and follow this tutorial Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions we will help with your problem. Seven Forums policy does not allow us to help with Pirated software.
