Windows 7: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION afd.sys and other BSOD issues

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION afd.sys and other BSOD issues

Been having a bunch of strange BSODs lately, I think it has something to do with my wireless drivers, but I really don't know

All of them seem to be related to ntoskrnl.exe, each BSOD either has something along the lines of "ntoskrnl.exe+7c1e9, ntoskrnl.exe+7cc10" and other ntoskrnl.exe comands

The most recent one has been "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION afd.sys"

I've updated one driver for my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 agn + WiMax, which has been giving me tons of wireless problems recently.

Does anyone know what the exact problem is? I've read that it could also be due to physical damage to my RAM, but I have no clue.

Windows Home Prem. x64
Original OS

Laptop is about a year old
I just reformatted for the fourth or fifth time in a week yesterday. So this installation is less than a day old.

Thanks a lot guys, sorry if this isn't descriptive enough

Hello, welcome to SevenForums!

Both of the attached dumps point to and blame afd.sys which is the Ancillary Function Driver for WinSock. Most likely network related, so I commend updating your NIC drivers to its latest version.
