Hardware malfunction when installing wireless network card

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Gary Glencross, Mar 7, 2004.

  1. I have a Belkin wireless network card that previously worked fine in a
    Pentium 2-233 machine. I put it into another more modern machine - 666 mhz
    or thereabouts with 128 Mb ram and Windows XP but after I've ran the
    installation disk and put the card in (in the proper order, I've done this
    before) I get the message
    *** hardware Malfunction
    Call your hardware vendor for support
    NMI Parity Check/Memory Parity Error
    the system has halted.

    What can be causing this. The only other thing I have in any of the PCI
    slots is a modem.

    Is something else conflicting with the card, or is the card simply
    incompatible with the motherboard or processor or something? Any
    suggestions, welcome!
