    Hey as long as you were able to solve the problem that is all that matters. Glad I was able to at least point you to a possible solution.

    Sometimes you have to unload and load a few different versions of the drivers to see which ones will keep it stable.

    Meaning, you may have to use an older version and not the latest and greatest. Experiment... Good Luck :)
