Windows 7: BSOD Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal caused by athrx.sys

Windows 7 Eternity x64
BSOD Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal caused by athrx.sys

I am running a Windows 7 x64 on an ASUS G73jw laptop.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 is the original OS installed on this laptop, but I am using Windows 7 Eternity x64 as I have been unable to obtain an official reinstallation disc from ASUS.

Home Premium x64 was originally installed OEM.

The laptop hardware is just over a year old, so it might possibly be software issues?

OS was just re-installed within the last month.

I have no idea what is going on, this seems to be a daily occurrence with this laptop. I had no issues with it until a few months back after being gone on deployment. I have all drivers up to date, as I looked at the forum to see if anyone else had the same issue as me.

Computer specs from ASUS:

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

Unfortunately, site rules prevent us from helping you because of the moded Windows 7 Eternity x64. It is not a legal release.

Part of the reason is also because we have no idea what "they" might have added or taken out.
