If a blue screen is encountered in Windows NT, a memory dump will not be generated if Windows NT has a 3Com Fast Etherlink/Etherlink XL PCI Busmaster NIC (3c905b) installed.


This problem occurs with the 3c905b assembly rev 03-0172. Assembly rev 03- 0152 of the 3c905b does not cause this problem. The assembly revision can be found in the upper left hand corner of the card.


The third-party products discussed here are manufactured by vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.

3Com has confirmed this behavior and is currently working on the problem.
