Windows 7: BSOD after getting very slow and freezes during random Process

BSOD after getting very slow and freezes during random Process

Hi

Unfortunately i didn't managed to get the error code yet, but I'll edit if I manage.
I assembled a new pc early this year and noticed that pretty recently it's getting a lot of BSOD, when I start many tasks at the same time, like downloading torrents, navegating on internet (Facebook gaming) installing stuff...
Prior to the BSOD the PC gets very slow and freezes
I think it might be a memory or HD problem.

Win 7 Ultimate x64
AMD FX 8150 3.60ghz
Ati Radeon HD6950 2gb
MOBO ASUS M5A99X
RAM 1DDR3 4gb 1600Mhz

Thank u

Hi, i was already thinking I was not gonna have BSODS then all of suddenly...
I followed the intructions and update Win7 SP1 package, my pc was okay since.
I did manage to gather some info on the log:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

and like zigzag pointed it was related to athrxusb.sys

athrxusb.sys - address FFFFF88002B1B231 base at FFFFF88002A79000 DateStamp 488F1151

also manage to get win7 info on startup through i don't now if its important.

BCCode: d1
BCP1: 0000008007571830
BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF88002B1B231
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1

I'll try to find a new usb wireless driver or change the one I use.

Edit: Didn't manage to find a new usb wireless Driver for my Mymax MWA/USB 108M, I'll see if i can change for a new one, since i can't use cable connection.

Thanks for letting us know, and if you are not crashing you probably can use the current driver for the Mymax. You may want to re-install in compatibility mode if it is older than June 13, 2009
To install an older driver in win 7 you need to install it in compatibility mode.


To install in compatibility mode right click the installer, go to properties, then compatibility. Choose the appropriate OS


Compatibility Mode

Thanks for the help... unfortunatelly my Mymax wireless usb card fried so I can't test the solution on it. But since then my BSOD problem stoped. So once more thank you guys for helping me.

PS: Now I have a problem with an wireless card on X64 system but this is a topic for another thread.
