Windows 7: Recurring BSOD, need help

20 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Recurring BSOD, need help

Hello everyone, I just registered here so i can get some help with this very annoying problem. You see, i have been getting bsods very frequently (2 every day). I have found that when i check out the report in Blue Screen View, ntoskrnl.exe is ALWAYS there, sometimes accompanied by other system files. I really need help, but all i can provide is this one dump file. Reason being i performed a reinstall of Windows 7 Ultimate and i performed a disk clean, and i cleaned all of my .dmp files thinking i wouldn't need them since i thought the problem would be fixed. Well, I was wrong. I even performed an sfc /scannow to check for corrupt files, some were found and fixed. But apparently that was not enough. I have no clue what the solution to this is, and help very much appreciated. Thank you!

Hello and Welcome !

Seems like athr.sys i.e. Atheros Wireless LAN Driver as caused the System to crash. Please go to their website or Laptop manufactures website and install the latest version of Driver. Check this website ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows

Follow this guide for Driver Cleanup


An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.

Sorry for the sort of late reply and i hope you come back to check back on this thread to see you just saved me lots of frustration and research! Again, THANK YOU!!!

It's sad that people won't respond if they get it fixed. Atleast there are few of them who value our suggestions that care to come back and report.
