BSOD moving the antenna on DLINK card in my x1 PCI-E slot

okay, so recently i purchas a dlink extreme wirelee n pci-e card. when i installed it, and windows 7 64 tried to install the drivers, it BSOD on me, but thats the funny part, it booted up fine and the drivers were installed and there was no dump file to be found.

now about 10 minutes ago i was getting poor range due to me being a little bit from my router, i got Verizon FIOS so for wireless, its not a problem of speed

but then out of no where just from touching one of the 3 antennas, it BSOD and i have a dump file, anyone care to help me out, i have the latest drivers downloaded, could it be my PCI-E x1 slot or my card itself, i mean, other than that i havent had a problem works fabulous.

heres the dump file.

any help is always much appreciated.

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Thats what i figured, i mean i barely touched the card itself, im on it right now and have not had a BSOD and my connection is running amazing.

so maybe its one of those instances where i just leave it alone and it wont cause a problem.

Could be. If that is the case it might be a defective router antenna. I would test it for a bit
