Windows 7: BSOD at i5 2nd cores' 2nd thread 100% usage

BSOD at i5 2nd cores' 2nd thread 100% usage

Hello!
Recently I bought a new laptop ACER v3-571G manufacturer number NX.M67EL.002 - with no Windows pre-installed. After installing a Windows 7, I immediately had problems with Atheros wireless drivers - it could barely connect to the wireless network (most of the time when i start up Windows i need to go to the device manager and disable-enable Atheros network adapter and after this step I have no connection issues until I restart laptop). I have tried different methods and ended up by writing everything HERE: PROBLEM with Atheros WiFi connection - Acer Support Community

As I reinstalled Windows (which is written in that topic) I still had BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f
The i5 2nd cores' 2nd thread goes to 100% usage and my laptop seemingly slows down - at that moment I cant open a new programs, but can work with already opened. After some minute or two the OS is crashing

The main questions are:
It is a problem in software or hardware - do I need to send my laptop to the warranty repair?
Could it help if I buy Windows 8 and reinstall from my Windows 7 or it can be repaired on my old OS?

Thank you in advance!
I have added the SF_Diagnostic_Tool zipped files as attachment!

Your graphics driver seems to be causing some issues, and is very outdated, please update it to the latest WHQL version which has been tested by Microsoft for stability and compatibility.

Daemon Tools uses a driver called sptd.sys, which is known to cause BSODs with Windows 7. It is recommend you remove this program, and use Windows own in-built features or ImgBurn.

Your Atheros network adapter driver seems to be outdated, and may also be a possible cause, please update it from here: ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

For the graphics driver - I have the Intel 4000HD and Nvidia GT 730M, so the newest drivers form nvidia website shows that I don't have compatible graphics hardware. I'll try to download the newest drivers for Windows 7 x64 from ACER support page "Version 9.18.13.0717" Acer | Download for V3-571G.

I'll remove AVG and daemon tools, SPTD.

As for network adapter - driver version is 10.0.0.221 and it is the newest one (although I have a big problems with stability of wireless driver)

Okay, the latest driver for the graphics card is 6/3/2013.

Have you tried using a wired connection? What is the quality of your ISP (Internet Service Provider)?

Wired connection is not working! For some reason it is not responding to Ethernet cable from modem and router. (disabling wireless is not helping)

ISP for Latvian market is not too good, but overall it is fast and haven't been disconnected for a while!

The weird this is that, after disabling-enabling network device in device manager, it is working without problems until Windows restart.

Do you have the LAN driver installed from the Acer support page for your model?

What is the wireless signal strength?

Install the Wireless Atheros LAN driver from your Acer support page, sometimes drivers are modified by the OEM for a specified model.

Do you know if is possible to install a different OS on your laptop? The point here is to test the devices on a different environment so if they still do not work with a diff OS your laptop may need to be serviced.
I know it might sound crazy, I have done it myself sometimes to test such problems.

Wireless signal is at maximum, also for my roommates, and TP-LINK 300mbps Multi-Funciton wireless N router is 5 meters from my laptop (in 1 room, so no walls or obstacles in middle).
The only LAN driver is for Broadcom and 2 Wireless LAN drivers (Broadcom and Atheros). I'll add picture of Hardware Detection Vendor to be sure that I have Broadcom LAN!

Well... "Could it help if I buy Windows 8 and reinstall from my Windows 7 or it can be repaired on my old OS?" same question for me! I have worked on Windows 8 and if it is possible, I would like to wait for Windows BLUE (for the possibility that they will add start button). As for Win8 I wouldn't like to buy it now, because I'm not sure that it will help...

P.s I updated Nvidia drivers and up to this time there was no BSOD, but they were VERY random, so I will leave my laptop working for overnight (if I wont forget) that should cause BSOD!
