Computer locking up and BSOD

Hi All

HP Pavalion dv-7 1260us Win7 Pro. Originally came with Vista. I wiped drive and did clean install, not an upgrade 6 months ago. This just started last week.

I am having trouble with my laptop locking up and BSOD. Sometimes when it starts to act up it will just freeze and then the screen goes black and I have to hold down power button to shutdown. I have run Windbg and I think the problem is with my wireless adapter, Atheros AR5009. I have uninstall and reinstalled it, updated BIOS to the latest. HP's website does not list any drivers for Atheros and more, only list a Broadcom driver. Not sure if it will work with my computer. Also I had Virtual box installed, (I unistalled it) but it left a Virtualbox bridge networking driver miniport #4 in device manager and I can not remove it. Right now I am running in safemode with no problems and I have this comp dual booted with ubuntu 11.4 in classic mode. Was having problem with unity. I do not have any problem locking up in ubuntu. Trying to find the problem without wiping the drive and reinstalling OS's which would be easier but I would not learn as much.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Doug
