Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 1545 BSOD, error 0x000000fe

Dell Inspiron 1545 BSOD, error 0x000000fe

Today, 11/23/2014, around 11:00 I was working on my laptop when it blue screened and I do not know what had caused it. Prior to the blue screens I was experiencing random shutdowns for the past week and a half and I noticed in the Event Viewer, there are 4 critical kernel power entries with Event ID 41, but all of the BugCheck codes were 0x0, with the parameters being all 0x0 for all of the 4 entries which I thought was odd. Then today, I experienced an unexpected bluescreen. I checked with BlueScreenView and it had the error code 0x000000fe. I looked in event log and it was a kernel power entry with the exact same Event ID 41, but it had an error code, unlike the other entries. This is what event viewer shows for the bluescreen:

BugcheckCode 254
BugcheckParameter1 0x6
BugcheckParameter2 0xfffffa800450aa55
BugcheckParameter3 0x4f444648
BugcheckParameter4 0x0
SleepInProgress false
PowerButtonTimestamp 0

Before this happened, I was just using Google Chrome and was not using intensive programs at the time, so I am not sure what had caused it. Looking forward to some help. Thanks!

Hi mjamesf.

Go to Support | Dell US .... update the driver for Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card.

Then let us know how the computer is running.

I updated the driver for the Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card. I have not experienced any blue screen yet. But I still don't know why the laptop turns itself off in sleep mode. It seems to happen more when the laptop is unplugged, but it happened four times within the past week and a half. I'm not sure if it's related to the blue screen which happened after all of those random shutdowns.
