Exclamation Belkin Wireless Adapter Lockup

I'm out of ideas now.

I just build a new machine, and everything is working, except when i try to install the drivers for my Belkin Wireless Adapter, it freezes at ar5211.sys. When I install it using only safe mode, it will install just fine, but then when i restart, windows xp will lockup at the loading screen. When i re-enter safe mode, and uninstall all of the drivers and the utility, it will load windows.
I've tried both the drivers that came with the card and the newest from Belkin's website.

I'm using a Gigabyte DS3, I don't know if that helps. I'm really stumped on this one. Thanks very much for your help.

Yep tried that. It will boot up with the card physically plugged in, and will boot into safe mode with the drivers, just not normally. Of course tech support is no help.

could try updating all your motherboard drivers too, belkins support is terrible and slow at releasing new drivers.
