A while ago we had a lan party and there was this one oak running Win ME .Whenever the network calbe got a bad bump so that the plug would move at the nic the system would crash and on restarting it it wants to reinstall the NIC . The drivers is non existant on the machine and reinstalling drivers won't work .So he ended up reinstalling Win ME . It happened three times .Can't remember if it still did the same when on the fourth time he installed 2k { Too long ago About a month } {It jusr sprang to mind now so I figured . Hey Let hear what you have to say :) }

windows\inf would be my first spot to check....

sounds like the card wasn't all the way in the slot... and was shorting out when you jiggled the cable....
