IIRC, something about usbhci.sys and wpn111.sys - oddly, it almost
always occurs with uploads. I can make it crash reliably by uploading a
video to Facebook, for example. On the other hand, it can happily
download for hours in a row previous to that.

Yes - (from my original post (reply continues below quote))

Yes, but tried disconnecting all but USB mouse and wireless keyboard (no
choice about having them!)

PRISM is no longer. It is just going to be painful for you until you
replace the wireless adapter with one that is properly supported and
more recent. It looks like a driver issue and there is no driver
development being done.

Hi Barb;

Thanks - yes, I know Prism is no longer, but at least it doesn't bring
down the whole PC when it disconnects. When any USB adaptor crashes, it
bluescreens the whole system. So between clicking "repair" and retyping
a whole document, I know which is less painful. The problem is when it's
5am and it disconnects...

are you saying that any USB adapter you use blue screens and crashes
the system? is this just wireless adapters or other types of
peripherals.
