    Done a few searches on that stof error, including the 005 hex status code, but couldn't find anything remotley useful.

    You got a brand for USB wifi, I could see if they have a hidden away website, and see if they have any newer beta drivers?

    yeah, I was searching for days. I got a generic adapter with the latest drivers. I email their tech support to see what can be done. I just hope that it solves my serial2usb problem too (same error)

    I'm thinking that if other things have been affected too, it is probably the serial to USB converter chip driver that is causing the probs. rather than the devices themselves. Might be that you have two devices with serial2USB chips, but different devices, and they are fighting over which driver to load?

    I've tried of that too. I've tried running them one at a time to isolate what was crashing the PC when the PC first crash.

    I had an issue with my USB drawing too much power and would crash my system ... just a thought.

    My generic USB WiFi adapter does the same thing on my EPIA V8000. I now have an extension cable connected to my hub so I can elevate the WiFI for better signal when I'm using it. When Im not using it I unplug the WiFi. And ensure PC never boots with it connected. Also reduces current draw, and memory usage as drivers aren't loaded all the time.

    Not an ideal fix I know but it solved it for me.

    My CarPC currently has no power switch as it turns itself on and off, so when I get the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) I have to open my access panel and root around for the power feed cable for my OPUS 90w and tug it out...

    Next job on list is to add Power/Reset switches, and various LED's to my dash.
