As I said I no longer use this "D-Link DWA-140" I recently bought a Pce card to replace it. Iv done my best to remove all the software that came with it, could you possibly offer some assistance with this?
And yes, Iv been quite displeased with that adapter for the time I had it.

Memtest86+ showed no error after 5 passes.

MemTest86+ needs at least 8 completed passes finished.

In control panel go to device manager, expand 'Network Adapter', right click the device and choose 'uninstall', that should get rid of it.

The adapter does not show up there, I "uninstalled" it when I changed but clearly there are remains. Id love to get rid off it all, any suggestions?

So, let me describe my problem in more detail. As I said, it's very similar to the original poster's symptoms but I can add a few additional details to help diagnose...

There where the similarity is I think striking because rather unique, is that the problem only happens within +-10-15 min of booting. So after several initial crashes it almost always will finally go on working without a hitch for the rest of the day!? Which could be 10-12 hours working normally (this therefore makes me think it's not an overheating problem).
The problem has recently gotten worse, and now I can never even boot once without it crashing at least once within that time frame.

Either or all of the following symptoms could occur in one session: freeze completely, reboot on it's own or a BSOD (either while on or on the reboot). At it's worst, I think it took at least 4 or 5 crashes to get it running ok.
Yesterday and today have been good with only the one obligatory startup crash which has been the instant reboot. Although I do remember that the early symptoms were more a complete freeze forcing me to do the reboot myself.

One other interesting fact I should mention is, when I once ran the Windows Memory Diagnostics that runs before Windows boot, I ran it with the extended options as it had previously passed 2 runs of the normal test, and it froze then too! At least I think it did. There is a message displayed saying that during testing the PC might appear to be frozen, but I couldn't invoke either of the two available commands (Exit and Options) so I assume it really was frozen.
And that leads me to believe - correct me if I'm wrong! - that maybe it's hardware related since it happened BEFORE the OS was loaded! Am I right?

I just find the symptoms hard to understand...if it is a hardware failure, why does it only fail on startup?! Doesn't make sense to me.

Despite having it configured for create dump files, it almost never does. And I can't restore either because I discovered that although my system was configured to create Restore points, for some reason the space allocated to that was 0%! (Maybe because Windows dynamically allocates space for Restore according to available HD space? And since I've often found myself with almost only a few Mbs left...maybe then Windows didn't re-increase the space after I made some available?)

Here are two photos I did of 2 BSOD I got (there were others, with different messages).







So...any thoughts?

Hi chumbo,

In this thread I'm focusing on the OP, I understand that you are having similar problems but if I help 2 users at the same time it might give problems like me giving suggestions for you while it is meant for the OP.

Please read BSOD Posting Instructions & How to upload files & create a new thread to get the attention that is required for your problems.

Thank you, it looks fine to me.
For now we can ignore it

Lets see if we can try a thing with the driver anodlwfx.sys, I guess it belongs to ASUS so I would like you to remove the ASUS software and reinstall it.
I suggest that you use Revo Uninstaller to remove everything of ASUS, but please be careful with it and carefully check what it finds, the things Revo Uninstaller finds might come from the registry in which case you need to verify that it really is from ASUS though that can easy be done by carefully going through what Revo Uninstaller has found.
