Really? The BSOD caused by the Wi-Fi was the first I had experienced in the entire year and a half I've had with my laptop. Isn't there a faster way to do this?

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it much unless it happens again. If you wanted, though, you could run driver verifier. That will test the drivers you select (just do all the 3rd-party ones) and throw a BSOD if it finds a "bad" one. It could result in BSODs caused by drivers that weren't giving you any trouble under normal usage.

It has different effects on different systems. On some, you don't even notice it's running, and others, it slows performance to a crawl. On my own system, it essentially killed my network connectivity but left performance untouched.

So I should just go back to my work and leave it?

Yeah, either forget about it or enable driver verifier and then forget about it.

Ok, I can't be bothered lol. I'll just leave it be and if I get another BSOD than I'll tell you.

Thanks a lot man, I really appreciate it. Repped.
