Seeming random BSOD, with: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL

Hi readers,

I have recently tried to clean up an old laptop, I re-installed windows and a bunch of software. But ever since I have been experiencing BSOD screens every other day. I do not have any experience in solving this. Any advice is much appreciated.

My apologies, you probably get this a lot . I was under the presumption the dump files were all that were necessary. Anyhow here is the other information.

My laptop just got an BSOD again. Which is twice in an hour and seems somewhat troubling. Anyhow, I've managed to update the network drives as you suggested, so I hope this does the trick. Thank you gain, I really appreciate you taking your time to help me!

If you re-run the tool again, I'll check the latest .dmp file - I assume that BSOD happened prior to updating the Atheros driver?

Yes the BSOD happened before I did the Atheros driver update. Here's the report you asked. And thanks again.

Confirmed - it was also the Atheros driver. After updating, it should be OK now.
