First why are you using two antivirus !!!!!!!!!!! Mcafee and MSE

remove Mcafee and use MSE

after you do the above.... do reinstall your wireless drivers ... they are part of all the errors in the BSOD..

If the Alienware laptop is purchased after September 2009.... then it has a dell service tag sticker on the back of the laptop..... go to dell support site and enter the tag... you will get all the driver and updates...

if its purchased before september 2009 you need go to Alienware support to get the drivers and updates

There doesn't seem to be any drivers for windows 7 64x nor 86x for some reason..
There are a lot for Windows vista, but none for windows 7. Am I doomed..? or will Vista drivers work for me??

I believe one of these two is the tag.. been so long since i had to use them, so i forgot which one it is. This is a pre-dell era laptop btw.
