    Crash with Popping noise from Speakers

    I just got a used Dell Inspirion 8500 and it crashes intermittantly and emits a popping sound resembling a gunshot before the system restarts. I get a blue error screen for a fraction of a second before the system restart but it is not on the screen long enough to read. I am using a D-Link AirPlus DWL-650+ network card and I think the problem might be related to the card because the card only works sporadically and the crash happened one time while I was "repairing" the network connection. Has anyone heard anything like this? Thanks for your help.

    Could be the power management on the soundcard. Go to Control panel and double click on SigmaTel Audio. Make sure the power management box is unchecked.
