Your issue is drivers, I suspect a reinstall will not solve, but no harm trying, your last three crashes are Wireless related.

Uninstall:

Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 5000 Series Adapter Driver for Windows Vista 64 Bit (incorrect driver)


Install:

Qualcomm Atheros WLAN Driver (Driver) 74.16Mb zip

And that should resolve those 3 crashes.


Cheers

Hi and they are your problem methinks

Thanks for the feed back,

all your drivers, ethernet, network controller etc are on the website i gave you previously.

You need to download those and install and then reboot, (did your computer not come with a drivers disc?)


Re-check device manager and re post result

Cheers

Hi peally, the chipset drivers will also need downloading and reinstalling, In device manager ,have you right clicked on the devices with the yellow triangles and selected "update driver" ?
