Windows 7: Multiple BSOD occuring while gaming/startup (ntoskrnl.exe++)

Multiple BSOD occuring while gaming/startup (ntoskrnl.exe++)

Attachment 279350I built my computer last week and everything was running fine. I suddenly started getting BSOD while either playing games such as Crysis, League of Legends, Portal 2, or even starting up the PC.

I tried a fresh install of Windows 7 and there were less crashes, but they still happened nonetheless.

Memtest passed without errors also.

BlueScreenView reported problems due to ntoskrnl.exe, USBsystem.exe and a few others, and I'll post the .zip of the dump files.

I'm fairly new to this so all help is appreciated,

Thanks a lot,

Jim.

Hello and welcome to the forums, I havelooked through your files and it looks like all of your BSODs are being caused by the same thing:

Code:
*******************************************************************************

looking at the driver we can see it is very old:

Please update the driver from here: ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

Hi there, thanks for the reply!

I've tried to install some of the drivers however it comes up with a message saying that the "device driver installation wizard was unable to find any designated drivers for your machine" and proceeds to cancel the installation.

Which driver off the site am I supposed to be installing?

Also, searched around on the web, does my TP-link wireless USB have anything to do with the problem?

whoops my bad, it looks like it is a proprietary version of the driver being used by your USB wifi adapter updates can be found here: Download - Welcome to TP-LINK you should look for the model number of the USB adapter you have on that site.
