Problems installing wireless card on Windows ME PC

by k6lw / August 4, 2006 1:18 PM PDT

I installed wireless card(model listed below) into my kids PIII running ME(specs listed below), along with the software and driver.

Upon Restarting I get the blue screen, and the message:
"An Exception 0E has occurred at 0028:FF0SC9BB in VxD ---. This was called from 0028:C1902DF3 in VxD ___."
May be possible to continue... Push any key
I hit any key and a blue screen pops up saying:
"Windows Protecion error. You may need to restart your computer. System Halted."

Forced to boot in safe mode I uninstall the wireless cards software. Then I reboot normally without errors.

Can anyone help me This card is support to run fine with ME. Thank you.
