Daily cold boot crashes - might be caused by tcpip.sys?

Hello,

My PC has experienced almost-daily crashes for the last, I would say, 2 months (almost never did before that). It always happens right after I turn it on: it boots up, Windows starts, then after a couple of minutes, the mouse pointer freezes and BSOD. It restarts itself, and after that it's stable and doesn't crash again. Tonight I installed the Windows debugging tools to take a look at it, and it appears that tcpip.sys would be the culprit, but judging by another post on this same forum, it's probably something else. I attached the last 4 minidump files to this post. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could take a look at it to see if they can see what it causing my problem.

I know it would probably help to remember what has been installed at the time those BSODs started occurring, but I don't, I'm very sorry.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide,
Olivier

Almost forgot: last week-end I cleaned up the inside of the case (lots of crud there): compressed air, vacuumed everything I could, and lo and behold, no BSOD that day and the next. Resumed after that. :unsure: I also forgot to mention that I have an SSD for my system.

Finally, I noticed another used requested this from bluescreenview in another post:

Update: removed the graphics card this morning and cleaned it real well. No crash this morning so far. Looks like my PC has developed a dust allergy? :confused: :lol:

Rerun the last set of instructions to make sure chkdsk got everything. I see it corrected the file system so I want to make sure it corrected everything.

Sorry, I missed your reply.

Well actually the issue has been solved, thank you very much for your help. I just can't tell if the above alone solved it or if the extra internal cleaning helped. So I guess the above AND the cleaning took care of the problem. Again, thank you VERY MUCH for your help! :thumbsup:
