Windows 7: BSOD Only when tring to wake from Sleep

BSOD Only when tring to wake from Sleep

Hey all,

So I have a Dell Alienware Desktop Area-51 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, Dual Western Digital 300gb 10k RPM HDD Raid 0, 12gb Triple Channel RAM and Intel i7-970 @3.2GHz Processor

I just bought it back in June, 2011. A few days ago I wiped the Hard drive and re-installed windows 7 Ultimate x64 using a full retail Win 7 Disc, as it was easier to find than the win 7 disc that came with my computer.

After I got all the updates and drivers done everything was fine and dandy. I went out and came back, the computer went to sleep so I moved the mouse to wake it up. All my fans came on but then I got a BSOD and the I had to re-boot.

It only BSODs after the computer goes to sleep and I try to wake it up ( I have repeated this test and it happens everytime).

NOTE: I know there is no anti-virus yet, i was going to install ESET, but the only reason I didnt yet is incase I have to re-install windows again.

Thanks in advance for any help

Dex these were Related to k57nd60a.sys NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet NDIS6.x Unified Driver. from Broadcom Corporation. Yours is from early 2009. Suggest you re-install newest driver.

Well I must say I feel foolish, I updated the Broadcom drivers and now it works.

Thanks very much for the quick reply and quick fix.
