PC Crash (Wireless Network conflict?)

Hey, first off i'd like to say how refreshing it is to find a site for the PC novice who does not want to be strung along for 3 hours on a premium helpline :(, keep up the good work guys :thup:

My problem is that my PC is randomly resetting itself.

Windows says the problem is,

Error Caused by Graphics Device Driver:
Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078)

However, this problem only occurs when i'm connected to the internet. Furthermore this problem only started having been connected to the internet via a new wireless internet. It is a 'Netgear' system for design and being used by an AOL account. I'm connected via a USB wireless...thingy. A friend told me that conflicting signals from the network traffic conflicting with current drivers may be the cause. I'm pretty lost though, has anybody had this problem or any advice?

Thanks for any feedback.

looks like you driver for graphics card needs to be updated. what brand and make is it? can you find out?
Well my display driver says it is a

Medion GeForce4 MX 420/440SE

Does that sound right?
yes... go to

Click on 'Grahpic Drivers'.... then in the 2nd box your see a list of nVidia products so click on the one that says 'GeForce and TNT2'

the next box will list operating systems, so click on the version you have... then click on 'Go'... that will let you download the newest Geforce drivers
Cheers, i'll install these and get back if i have anymore trouble :thup:
