Default Bittorrent

I'm having a problem with Bittorrent on one of my laptop PC's. Sometimes I can download just fine, other times Bittorrent will cause the system to BSOD (Win XP SP2) with an IRQ error.

I don't understand how a piece of software can possibly cause problems with my ethernet hardware, so I was wondering if anyone else has seen this problem.

I'm using Bittorrent 3.4.2 with Burst on WinXP. This particular system is a Compaq Presario 2500 laptop, P4 2.4GHz, 256MB RAM and I'm using the integrated network adapter on a DSL modem.

Any help is appreciated.

PS: I haven't tried the 3.9.1 Bittorrent beta yet.

Yup, it happens. My room mate had to use some other BT client (one that wasn't based off of the official BT client) to make it stop. He eventually got a new ethernet card and it's worked fine since.

Try going to How to disable p2p limitation on xpsp2 and see if that helps. Otherwise, try getting one of them el cheapo usb ethernet dongles and see if your ethernet port is fuxed (mine did after a thunderstorm so if you run your laptop 24/7 it may have got hit)

In my experience 99.99% of the time that Win XP BSOD's is the hardware's fault unless there is a driver issue. Other than that, no , you can't blame it on Windows anymore...
