BSOD when lid of laptop is closed and idle

Hello!

I have been having problems with my ASUS laptop recently. I am not sure if this is related with the BSODs I've been having but the sound driver fails to boot up from time to time. I appreciate your assistance and time very much!

Welcome

The BSOD you are getting is due to the Atheros Network adapter driver.
Get an update for it.

Thank you koolkat. I have successfully updated my network drivers thanks to your assistance and things already seem to be less clunky! I will be sure to drop in again within a week to verify things are running smoothly (if not by tomorrow!).
Thank you again

Hello again!
I am sorry for the long gap since my last response. I have actually still been getting the same issue after updating my wireless adapter. Attached is a compilation of .dmp files I have received until now (the old ones are still in there, which are 091112 and 091312).

Thank you again for your time and assistance!

Your latest dumps are not loading properly. Try grabbing them again.

But they show memory corruption.

Run memtest86+ for 8 passes (Preferably overnight)
