    I have been having issues with my desktop. I recently had a new WIFI adapter installed. The ASUS N600. Everything was working fine before then but when the wireless adapter was installed, it won't even boot into Windows and I even try to re-install Windows the BSOD appears and it goes into a continuous BSOD.

    Is there any way I can fix this?

    I was trying to reinstall Windows 8.1 and I have an ASUS P8Z77 V motherboard with an i7 3770 and 8GB of DDR3 Corsair XSM3.

    If you think the wifi adapter is the problem then uninstall it.

    The WIFI adapter is brand new and I can't even get into Windows.

    Brand new doesn't mean it is working correctly and has you mentionned the problem began just after you installed it.

    PS: Perhaps u used the wrong driver, check and correct this
