Windows 7: Several sudden BSODs

Several sudden BSODs

Windows 7 Professional x64 OEM on a Dell Studio XPS 1645. The machine is under a year old, but I recently had to replace the hard drive due to the clicking of doom. It's been working fine for the past week, but all of a sudden, it's blue screened 4 times this morning.

If it makes a difference, all three times the screen sort of minimizes when the BSOD happens so that the image is 1:1 with the screen rather than blowing it up to take the whole screen. I've never seen a BSOD do that before, so I think it might be related.

I've not been doing anything too stressing, other than exporting photos in Adobe Lightroom, but it got through that just fine.

Thanks for the help!

Hello,

The crashes point to your Intel WiFi drivers as the probable cause; perhaps a Windows Update set this all off. I see the drivers are fairly old:
Code:
NETw5v64.sys     Thu May 14 11:51:34 2009 (4A0C3E06)
Install this updated one: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=3062&lang=eng

If the BSODs persist, run driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

...Summary of the dumps:
Code:
