Windows 7: BSOD When Playing D3

BSOD When Playing D3

HEYAH!

I have tried to fix this problem by myself, but havent succeeded. managed to remove few errors from event Viewer but seems like the reason for my crashes is something weird :S
I get blue screens ONLY when I Play D3, I can play it but at random times it crashes 15min-2h usually.
I have re-installed D3, tried different drivers and lots of other simple stuff like memtest etc. But cant seem to get it right.
About PC, I've built it myself and it has been doing this since I started playing D3. Other game I have played is Wolf Team and its not crashing.
One thing I have noticed from forums is that my TP-Link Usb router have caused problems also. Its hot as cup of coffee when in use, and I already contacted TP-link about it. Just to know is that normal.

This error I can find from Event Viewer. ALWAYS there when I get BSOD. So could be the reason but no idea how to fix.

WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athExt.dll
Error Code: 126





So I decided to give up on trying myself and ask help
Hopefully I can finally get this thingy fixed.
Also hoping that there is enough information for starters
Ofc, if you have anything to ask I'll be glad to answer.

There is dumb file and some event info added.

THANKS!


E: I noticed sevenforums got own tool for dumps etc. so let me know if the ones I posted not good so I can get one with yours.

Welcome
You gave us only one dump file which did not lead us in any direction. The driver verifier might be suggested, but that is a lot of work and we do not know for sure
When you get additional BSODs, please submit them to us.

Okay. Well I gathered all info with SF tool after latest crash. Thou it didnt give me blue screen for some reason. Just stated in d3 that your connection on battlenet has timed out. Everything started flashing, and after clicking OK d3 closes and Mozilla hangs and only thing which I was able to do is restart and after it no problems. Will try d3 more later today if I manage to get blue screen

Here is most recent info from SF tool.

I am not getting the all important dump reports. Next blue screen submit again. If there are no dump reports we can try to get them with other means if necessary or change your settings.

If it does not happen again, it was a one shot problem. Dont worry about it.

Its not one shot problem

It has been doing it since I started playing d3 2-3 weeks ago.
Sometimes gives blue screen sometimes just crashes D3 and all other apps and cant use any before restart. As of today, I played d3 for few hours without any errors, but then suddenly game crashed and made me restart pc, but no BSOD. Pretty annoying cause its so random..
Doesnt require any special action in game..it just happens.

Any idea should I update bios? My version is 2 patches behind the current version on ASUS. And if I should, any good guide for it? Seen few but maybe you know something better


Also IMO it eems that Wlan-Auto Config is somehow related to it...Cause it always appears in event viewer and tells me this:

WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\athExt.dll
Error Code: 126

I have set it on automatic from service manager but its not helping...

Thanks for helping...its getting late for me for today so I will keep on playing tmr and maybe I get the DAMN BSOD so can get the dump for ya.

Unless you have experience, I would ask for help with updating the bios.
