    Hello all: Running a 2006 vintage Compaq Presario C502CA with Celeron M440, 1.86 GHz, 1.5 GB ram. Originally came with Vista Home Basic 32bit, I installed Win8 preview in July 2012 & it ran fine without issue. Did the Win8Pro upgrade a couple weeks ago & all semms well except that when I try to establish an internet connection, it crashes & reboots [no BSOD].

    Here's the CrashMe output:

    Crash Dump Analysis

    Crash dump directory: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump

    Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.

    On Fri 2013-01-25 8:26:55 AM GMT your computer crashed
    crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\012513-15506-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ndis.sys (ndis+0x2EDF8)
    Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x1D, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFFFFF87E35DF8)
    file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ndis.sys
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: NDIS 6.30 driver
    Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

    Here's the LAN driver:

    Driver Name : Rtnicxp.sys
    Address : 0x8DF1C000
    End Address : 0x8DF2B000
    Size : 0x0000f000
    Load Count : 1
    Index : 93
    File Type : Network Driver
    Description : Realtek 10/100 NDIS 5.1 Driver
    Version : 6.109.530.2008
    Company : Realtek Semiconductor Corporation
    Product Name : Realtek 10/100 NIC Family all in one NDIS Driver
    Modified Date : 2012-06-02 6:32:01 AM
    Created Date : 2012-06-02 6:32:01 AM
    Filename : C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\Rtnicxp.sys
    File Attributes : A
    Service Name : RTL8023xp
    Service Display Name: @netrtl32.inf,%Rtlnicxp.Service.DispName%;Realtek 10/100 NIC Family NDIS x86 Driver

    Upon the advice of HP support, Win Defender & firewall have been disabled, no other anti-malware is installed. HP advises that the latest driver for the Realtek chip is included in Win 8Pro, so I am at a loss.

    Can someone help with this?
