I always get a GPF after trying to install the drivers for my NIC, now I've used 2 different ISA cards, and it keeps happening. It seems to have a problem with my sound card cause I get there 3 messages:

"MSGSRV32 caused a general protection fault
in module MMSYSTEM.DLL at 0003:00000988" after which I have no more sound and my Volume Control icon disappears

"RUNDLL32 caused a general protection fault
in module USER.EXE at 0011:00001231"

And finally: "MMTASK caused a general protection fault
in module MMSYSTEM.DLL at 0007:000001d0"

Now the REALLY weird part is. I had NIC 1 in, worked fine, tried to change it to another one and whamo, GPFs. Went back to old one, and it still has GPFs.

Any possible reasons/fixes?

Could this possibly be a driver conflict? You might try physically removing ALL NIC card drivers from your system and then try installing the new card.

The sound card just always seems to get tangled up in conflicts.

I had a similar problem with modem drivers and this did the trick.
