    D965WH / On-board GB ethernet - driver install causes PC to shut down


      On a presumably unrelated note, my primary HDD's bootsector became corrupted and no amount of work would restore it...so a complete re-install of Windows XP was needed.


      After the re-install was completed, I attempted to install the Intel-provided driver for my 82566dc on-board ethernet controller...except that when the driver install reaches a certain file (e1000-something.dll), the PC shuts down. Every time, without fail.


      I was able to install other drivers for other hardware without issues. I've updated the board's BIOS, too. The only time the PC shuts down automatically is when I attempt to install this driver.


      Any ideas?
