Windows 7: BSOD playing almost any game. Happens periodically.

BSOD playing almost any game. Happens periodically.

Ever since I've had this laptop I've had some periodic blue screens. I've never been able to pin down exactly what the causes are, as they seem to be a variety of things. I really hope I don't have to reinstall Windows because this laptop did not come with the disk :(


Minidump files attached. Plenty of old ones, but I didn't want to bother leaving them out in the case that they could be helpful

(I'm also installing the new Nvidia beta drivers tonight to see if it will help my issues at all)

I tried updating the wireless adapter drivers about a week ago and it messed something up (I can't remember if it was that it wouldn't pick up any signals or if it just wouldn't connect) Had to system restore afterwards to fix it

I will update those other two drivers though and I'll report back if problems persist

thanks for your help :B



Edit: Ah, looks like somebody else has had this problem
Atheros AR9285 WiFi Adapter not working
I'll keep digging for fixes for it (I don't have HP software on here, so I can't do whatever he did to fix it)

Got another blue screen after updating drivers (Haven't updated the wireless one yet as I have no access to a wired connection right now (I'm on vacation) and I don't want to risk any problems)

dump file attached
