BSOD Possible Graphics card driver issue? crash dump attatched

Hi all first post here so please correct me if I some how mess something up.

Been getting BSOD at random intervals and need to fix it ASAP.

Things to note:

-No BSOD in safe mode
-CPU is running at 90% at idle in normal mode (around 5% in safe mode)
-Defragged the computer for close to 16 hours without a single BSOD, however BSOD are far more frequent since then.
-Graphics card fan is extremely loud in safe mode

STOP: 0x000000D1

Graphics card is a ATI Radeon 6770
CPU is an AMD phenom II quad-core

Crash dump zip should be attached, but please let me know if you need additional information.

Thanks, Finn

Try to update athrx.sys (Atheros network adapter driver) to the last version. This driver figures as reason of BSOD in all dump files.

Okay thanks, is that possible to achieve from safe mode as I can't seem to last more than 2 mins without a BSOD in normal mode?

Okay update:

I went to update the atheros driver but windows claimed it was up to date so I searched online and found the driver. I updated it directly but got a blue screen midway.

I then disabled the driver and stopped getting BSOD so that's good, but without it I have no internet . I'm not sure if I need to post else where but it would be great to get some advice from here on where to look for network drivers .
