Windows 7: BSOD Error 0x17e I am stuck

22 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
BSOD Error 0x17e I am stuck

I think I know what is causing it but i don't know how to fix it.
Event viewer is saying that my "PCIE GBE family controller has encountered an invalid network address" and "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller : Could not find a network adapter." I get both of these errors every 10 mins or so. Under "critical" in event manager it says "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

The PCIE GBE family controller is in my device manager but the network adapters arn't. The annoying thing is I don't even need it as I am using a wireless network adaptor anyway. AI have downloaded all the latest drivers and even done a freash install and redownload of the drivers. Not sure what to try next.
Minidumps attached.

I purchased the computer on ebay and it came with a copy of windows. Not sure if it's OEM or not.

I think I solved the issue. Well not so much a solution but a work around. I disabled the offending technology in Bios. No errors no nothing all day now. Just tpo clarify. I disabled the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller#1 and #2. All good now.
