Hello,

Since sometime ago my computer has been presenting some trouble. Mainly it freezes (specially when I'm browsing the web) and most likely if I'm watching a video. It just freezes for some seconds, usually around 2 minutes.

Also, I have got BSOD two times in the last month. This is the main reason why I have decided to search for some help in hope of solving the problem quickly.

Here I paste some information about the system:


Windows 7 HOME BASIC

Service Pack 1

VAIO computer

Intel Core i3 CPU M [email protected] 2.13 GHz

RAM: 3,00 GB (2,73 to use)

64 bits system




I used the program WHOCRASHED, and did a scan to see what it could find.

Here's the information:

A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: athrx.sys (Atheros Extensible Wireless LAN device driver, Atheros Communications, Inc.).

I would appreciate any help!

Thanks

:welcome: Matteo89

All of your latest crashes have been caused by the network device.

Run DriverMax and see if a new driver is suggested for your network device http://www.innovativ....com/drivermax/

Let us know what is suggested before you update anything please.
