Windows 7: BSoD when installing Atheros Wifi driver

How are the bugchecks, have you had any?

I've asked for more help on the DPCs issue hopefully it will arrive soon.

It still didn't crash, and nothing particularly interesting happened.

Ok disable Driver Verifier now.

Are the DPCs still occur?

I see. And what about the BSOD? There must be a solution. Or you can't help me with that either?

You currently have a working and non-crashing version of the driver,
you ran Driver Verifier for over 24 hours with normal use of the PC without a bugcheck,
means the hardware is is in working order.
Given that the problem is easily reproduced by forcing the new driver
means the issue is with the new driver you're trying to install,
my bet is your specific hardware is not compatible with it.

That would explain it, but as always, there's a problem. I'm using this hardware-driver combination for about 4 years now, and for about 3 years, there was absolutely no problem whatsoever. I really tried to solve this problem for a long time, and now that even you can't do it, I think it's a hardware problem. In this case, I guess i can't do anything. So i'll have to get used to it (it's woking, after all). Anyways, thank you for trying to help me, even though you couldn't, I'm grateful.

I've been trying to solve this problem since that, but I made no progress. There was a time when I thought it was a problem related to cooling, because it seemed like the spikes are gone, but I was wrong. They are back, and they are not going to go anywhere. I honestly think there's no point of trying to solve it. I have to say, I don't even care, somehow I will get a new computer, I don't wanna waste my time anymore.
