every couple months, my laptop returned a IRQL Less or Equal BSOD, i clean installed windows every few months.
Koolkat (tx for your tremendous help), analyze that the error was from the installation of my atheros wireless driver
. i installed the driver from the CD driver that came from the notebook. and i updated the driver through that CD software as well.
i wanna learn debugging myself because i wanted to see whether my clean install still have that unclean driver installation or not. So, i wanted to know which file from the dump folder from the BSOD instruction did koolkat found my problem.
i assume its the dmp file and thats how i ended up on this thread.
Now i've read this thread and went to this link Download and Install Debugging Tools for Windows
which one should i download since there are many links available there.
the first download link available over there was this one Install Debugging Tools for Windows as part of the WDK
but since its written for windows 8 i decided to downloaded this one instead of that one Download the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7
under the second link there is another download link Download Windows Symbol Packages
should i download this as well?
so far i have downloaded Download the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7
and i got stuck on this step of this tutorial ==> C:\debuggers>windbg.exe -IA
windbg.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
did i download the wrong link? should i download the first link? and should i download the symbol package as well?
