PC restarts when Network card Enabled

By parthiv_13 ·
Windows XP Pro, i845GVSR with onboard LAN (intel(PRO)/100 VE network card).

It was working good till morning. In noon when I installed Sygate Personal Firewall it started restarting problem whenever I tried to get enabled my Network Card Enabled. So I went in to Safe Mode with Networking. And over there nothing was the problem. Network Card and all the things are working good. No restarts in Safe MOde. I removed the Sygate Firewall fromt there. And disabled network card from there.

Again I loged on in Normal mode. Where it was working good. But again when I try to enable my Network card it gets restarted.

I have tried installing and uninstalling of drivers. System Restore but its not working at all. There were no hardware conflict I found. Network Card is using IRQ 20 number.

So question is it works good in SAFE mode and not working in Normal mode when I enable my Network card... What is the Solution People....?

Thank you in advance for accepted or non accepted answers...

Change the interrupt to something else. Usually IRQ 11 and 10 are free on most systems.

HI,
It works in safe mode because minimal drivers a loaded in safe mode so it could be a driver or IRQ conflict. First are the drivers digital signed. Second try changing IRQ or disable the IRQ that couses the conflict. So go to run type msinfo32, enter Hardware Resources Conflicts/Sharing and check what IRQ is loaded with network card.
