BSOD while running on battery power

I would really like some help resolving my BSOD problem. I have experienced it several times now while running on battery but today it occurred while I was connected to power. I run blue screen viewer and it identified the broadcom driver as the main cause. Have tried reinstalling it twice now but no avail.

I have attached the results from the SF diagnostics tool.

Please help. I'm at the end of my wits here. tried everything I could think of except a reinstall of windows.

Yep, it's the broadcom driver all right.

Have you tried the broadcom site for the latest driver:

Determining the Correct Driver for Broadcom Ethernet Products | Broadcom

That should help you identify and download the latest driver for your braodcom device.

Thanks for the response smarteyball, I have already tried that before but I guess it won't hurt to try again. Hopefully this time my BSOD issue goes away.

Hopefully it is just software based and not a sign that the wireless card/chip itself is on it's way out.

(Do you have problems with it dropping out etc?)

No problems with drop outs at all. Works really well. Spoke to a tech guy and he suggested that it might be a problem with the power regulator for the wireless card. It seems to be running fine for now but it worked for a week last time i reinstalled the driver then BSOD again. Will just have to wait and see.

Thanks for the help smarteyball
