Windows 7: BSOD when lid of laptop is closed and idle

25 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Well, I attempted to update my wireless adapter and it failed halfway through (but it said it was up to date, which at that point I posted again because I still encountered the BSOD). I booted into safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless adapter and poof! Good as new! I still do have another issue of my Windows updates not working, but I am downloading them manually instead and running anti-malware.
