Hello asfagus.

Your BSOD is caused by a network adapter driver, but to know more about it, we need to see your MSINFO.NFO file. That one included in the zip is corrupt. So upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Also .... upload the text version of MSINFO32.nfo, too.

At step 3 above,... do File > Export. All the other are same ... It will save a text file. Upload it too.

you are kinda right because im using a tp link tl-wn721n wifi adapter on my pc.....i think that is a problem because it keeps disconnecting from my wifi and my wifi windows icon keeps freezing for minutes.... but about my graphic card,do u think its fine? i was doubting it had a problem since i bot it because my 15 second freezing issue was there in bf3 also..... when i played offline.... maybe graphic card is not connected properly..or hardware issue

That is the information I was searching for

The BSOD is caused by Athur.sys, which is developed by Qualicomm Athores, but used by TP-LINK Wireless USB Adapter.
Code:
Name:    [00000011] TP-LINK Wireless USB Adapter    
Driver:    c:\windows\system32\drivers\athur.sys
Code:

Try to search updates in Download - Welcome to TP-LINK.

My experience says that the site does not have update for all the models, as the driver is not developed by them. Atheros is also not interested to update those drivers, as it is not marketed by them. Still, search for possible updates and install those. Let us know how it is running after the update is applied.

For the further BSODS, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
