What temps are you getting? Use something like |MG| EVEREST Free Edition 2.20 and post a screenshot of "Sensors", tht should give us a good indication.

Probably bad drivers. My laptop would freeze up after a while when I put in a D-Link card. I found other drivers that supported the chipset used in the card and now my laptop doesn't freeze up.

So it's probably a similar issue for you. Try other drivers listed on the D-Link site, otherwise you'll have to search around.
