Windows 7: Crash when plugging in Wireless USB

Crash when plugging in Wireless USB

Hi guys,

today my system crashed; turns out the power cable of the gfx card was loose. After fixing that, windows 7 failed to boot properly for no apparent reason. Decided to re-install everything, but no luck. After some testing I narrowed it down to the wirless usb adapter. When connected upon start-up, the system would freeze or reboot directly when getting to the login screen. When connecting it while logged-on (windows runs fine without the adapter connected), the system reboots instantly or, less often, freezes. I updated all drivers, and all other USB devices seem to work fine. The USB Adapter also works fine when connected to another computer.

I saw two error codes - one was the 0x01E, the other bad_pool_header, but after the most recent re-install, it just instantly reboots.

I ran a memory check and also tried each module separately, but that had no effect. Is this a motherboard-issue?

Thanks for any advice!
