Windows 7: BSOD Problems

BSOD Problems

I'd been having issues with intermittent BSODs and decided to wipe in an attempt to resolve what I thought I had traced the problem to (Using ACPI mode).

Unfortunately, that did not solve all of my problems. All of my drivers are up-to date and I am going to run memtest overnight to check the ram. The impression I am getting from the varied state of the errors makes me worried it is a motherboard problem but before I go spend money replacing parts I'm interested in a second opinion.

Welcome to SevenForums.
I read all your mini dumps. Two reference to athros which I believe is a wireless internet adapter, one a usb port and one nt kernal. I would suggest looking at updating wireless adapter driver. Good luck to you.

Normally a number of different errors would signal a hardware problem.
I'm not convinced that you've experienced enough differing errors to suppose that this is a hardware problem.

The Asus P5 series of boards have been known to have issues with memory timings/settings/voltages that have caused BSOD's - so I'd visit both the Asus support website and the support website of the manufacturer of your RAM to ensure that you have the correct settings/timings/voltages.

The dump files point to athrx.sys and USBPORT.SYS. I suspect you D-Link DWA-556 wireless networking adapter (which is not certified as compatible with Windows 7).

There are directions on the D-Link website (in the FAQ's) on how to install this adapter in Windows 7 - so I would suggest following them. D-Link Xtreme N PCI Express Desktop Adapter

Windows 7 x64
 
 

I returned from a trip from being out of town today and booted the computer normally and everything was working fine. Then I started up Team Fortress 2 and after playing for about a minute the computer BSODed. I glanced at the debug screen and hit the reset button and stepped away. When I returned I was greeted by another blue screen. Since then everything has operated normally.

On the advice you gave me earlier - my network drivers are up to date with the latest from Atheros - D-Link's website has no Windows 7 drivers for this particular hardware. I also ran the inf update utility from Intel (ASUS's site had an outdated version) and that was all I could find for motherboard updates. The timings CPU-Z is reporting match what the ram specs are so I don't think that is the problem. Could it be reporting them incorrectly?

Attached are the dumps from the two consecutive crashes today.
