Windows 7: Help! Frequent BSoD in less than a month old PC

04 Dec 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

Hmm... Its not a installer but just a couple of file which I have to manually update. I selected "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" And after a while it said "Windows has successfully updated your driver software", I don't know if that solved the issue, but if the BSoD keeps happening I will get a new wireless card. Anyways you said that majority of the BSoD were because of the athrxusb.sys driver, could you please tell me about the other ones? I would really like to get all drivers updated in case I'm missing any. Yet again thanks for the help!

Do you mean just the drivers that are older, or the ones that are apt to cause BSOD's?

Well I guess both? I just want this computer to not have issues after I get a new wireless card.

Reality.
No such guarantees can be given.
Computers used by people are part of an imperfect & flawed world.

As usual crashes are a combination of things culminating in the crash. The only way to be fairly certain with software is to re0install win 7. With hardware it is a bit less certain.

On some systems they never happen, on some, they happen more often. Legacy systems (older) are more prone to them.

Well the could you please clarify the older drivers that I have? Thanks for all the help guys, I do think I'll get a new wireless card. I was hosting a Terraria server earlier and a hour later I crashed. What would you guys recommend? A wireless pci card or a wireless USB adapter?

Also kind of odd, I used to have a 7 year old computer that never crashed (not like it could run much).

P.S. Where could I find a tutorial to learn how to read DMP files, or is that a bit too advanced for common reach?

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

I am working on a seven year old computer using win 8 and have never crashed either.


There is an entry level application called blue screen view (by nirsoft) that does a decent job. (it is sometimes wrong)

You are most welcome.
