BSOD On Laptop

Hello guys, around 10 minutes ago i got a BSOD on my laptop.

So i was wondering, can someone please tell me what error it is showing so that i can solve it.

I know that this has something to do with a driver but i dont know which.

Any help would be appreciated

Please provide the info requested here:
From what I can see, this blames your wireless network device driver athr.sys ( Driver Reference )Here's my spiel about wireless USB devices:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.
If you must use the wireless device, please do the following (no guarantee's this'll work):
- download Windows 7 drivers for your device. If none are available, please post back with the exact make and model of wireless device.
- uninstall all remnants of the software/drivers that are currently installed for the wireless device.
- install the Windows 7 drivers and test for further BSOD's

- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall/remove them from your system. Reference links included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers:
