I am running windows 7 and getting BSOD frequently. My research suggests that it has something to do with tcpip. My computer is connected via wireless. I noticed that when I disable my wireless adapter (atheros ar938x) the problem seems to disappear. I attempted to attach the mini dump, but I get an error stating I am not permitted to upload this kind of file.

Help is appreciated.
Thx's
Frank

Hi frankabc :)
Try rolling back the driver for the atheros ar938x to the previous version, if this does not work try a complete uninstall and reinstall of the drivers, download the fresh drivers first and save them somewhere safe, uninstall the present drivers, reboot and install the new drivers.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I tried that, but it didn't solve the problem.

Do you mean that you tried both suggestions and if so did you ensure that all traces of the present drivers were removed.

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.
Thanks to rshaffer61 for the above guidance :)
