BSOD Resulting in slower Laptop

Hi, I've recently experienced some issues with my laptop, and it seems like a BSOD while playing Planetside 2 was the cause.

I've check the log viewer, and found an issue with WHEA 17 warnings.

I've followed the guide here Potential Fix For Nvidia Owners with Stop/WHEA Event 17 Errors!

However, it doesn't seem to have resolved the issue.

After the BSOD, I reinstalled the latest NVidia drivers, causing my computer to recheck the Windows Experience index. I previously had a score of 7.1, but after the BSOD, it fell to 6.2

The bottleneck is now my Disk Transfer rate, suggesting an issue with my OCZ Agility3 SSD.

I'm attaching two BSOD reports, (they happened in short succession) and hopefully you guys will be able to help me find the issue with my laptop.

From the dump files it looks like the atheros drivers are outdated. Click on the Start ► Control Panel ► Programs ► Uninstall a program ► Uninstall everything related to; Atheros and restart the system. Delete remnants of its drivers/older drivers using Driver Fusion/Sweeper
