Windows 7: Crash When Trying to Establish USB Modem Connection

Crash When Trying to Establish USB Modem Connection

Hi, I have a problem with a 3G USB "dongle" type modem (a Huawei E173) - Windows tries to establish a connection but then computer black screens and reboots and on startup says it has recovered from a BlueScreen. I have tried setting up a manual dial up networking connection to bypass the supplied connection manager software but with same result. The shop will not take the product back as they are satisfied it works (by testing it on one of their laptops) and think it is my laptop. The support line for the product are no help.
