Wireless adaptor for Armada E500

By hydrob ·
I have a Compaq Armada E500 with intel celeron 600Mhrz, windows xp professional with service pack 3, 64M RAM and 5G hard drive. I've bought recentlly a wireless adaptor TP-Link, 150Mbps Wireless Lite N. I installed the drivers from the CD but when I plug in the adaptor (USB) the computer gives me a blue screen saying that it has a problem with athuw.sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA message.
The adaptor works fine with my desktop (Intel E8400 with 4G of RAM).
Could be the RAM to slow (64Mhz)or something else?

If by "64M RAM and 5G hard drive" you mean 64MB RAM then I would suggest your seriously limited RAM is probably the root cause.

According to Microsoft, the minimum specification for XP Pro is as follows:...

PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*

Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor

CD-ROM or DVD drive

Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device


Personally, I have never seen XP Pro run acceptably with anything less than 512MB.
