Hello! and welcome to SF

Do this for me, try and boot up your PC with out the USB Wifi Adapter disconnected and see if it crashes.

Hi YoYo115,

Thank you for your reply ..... I don't know how else to test, so I unplugged the USB WIFI adapter and put the pc to sleep ........ waited a few minutes and then woke the pc up ...... everything went fine.

I then did the same thing but I left the USB WIFI adapter plugged in and again everything went fine.

Perhaps this will need a bit more time or we are looking at the wrong component.

The usb wifi adapter is a TP-LINK TL-WN8200ND Ver. 1.1 and it has the newest driver version already installed.

Could it be the USB port it is plugged into??

UPDATE:

I just downloaded the latest driver .... dated back to 2013 (same one I already have installed) ..... no newer version .... one of the files there is called > rtwlanu.sys < the same as you are referring to.

Could this be a driver issue or a hardware issue? What do you think?

Hi thanks for the update(s).
I personally believe that it's a driver issue caused by unsupported hardware.
Given the opportunity could you perhaps test the machine for about a week,
with normal use, avoiding that adapter in particular or possibly Wifi all together (perhaps using ethernet)?

Let us know.
Cheers.

Unfortunately there is no way I can use ETHERNET - at least not for now ..... perhaps in about a a week to 2 weeks time.

Evening YoYo155,

I have an update on the above issue. Just an hour ago, my tp link usb wifi card just stopped. I saw the green light was on all the time and not blinking. The wifi connection icon by the clock has no bars and has a red cross on it.

I then unplugged the tp link and waited for a few seconds before plugging it back in. Plugged it back in and there was no light .... no power to it or it has died ... I then fetched another same tp link usb wifi card from a friend, plugged that one in and still no light ..... his is working 100% .... or should I say was working a 100%.

Anyway, I now decide to swap the usb port at the back of the machine and still nothing on either tp link ..... keep in mind both are exactly same version and all .... the only difference is their serial number.

I then try my friends cable .... thinking the cable might have lost connection somehow.

I plug both tp links in the other cable on my pc and still no light .... I tried on 3 different ports.

I then plug both of them with both cables into my laptop .... everything works 100% on the laptop ............. and I still get nothing ........ so its safe to say that both tplinks are dead and they both got fried by something on the PC ............... the BSOD's I have been getting were referring to the driver ..... can a driver send incorrect voltages to the connected device??

If you can please shed some light here, I would be greatly appreciative.

Have a great evening and thank you in advance.

UPDATE:

If the driver did all this ... what is my next step ....... remove the driver completely and then reinstall or use a different brand for the wifi?
