Windows 7: BSoD streaming video to Xbox360 - Acer Aspire

BSoD streaming video to Xbox360 - Acer Aspire


This happens about 1 in 3 times I try to watch video from my laptop on my Xbox360. It doesn't happen right away, maybe 30 mins into watching, or even after many hours of watching.

The Xbox is connected to my home network using wireless. As far as I know, I am using WMP to stream (although I do remember initially running a WMC setup wizard on the Xbox). To watch video I use the Apps --> My Apps --> Video Player, then choose my Aspire.

I get the "feeling" this happens more often if I have uTorrent open at the same time but it has also happened when uTorrent is not running.

I've attached the requested files. I also attcahed the Minidump folder as I didn't see the dump files in the BSoD folder. I also attached a photo of the BSoD, however, this was quite old - it may not be any of the recent crashes seen in the dumps.

Hope you can help!

Computer: Acer Aspire 5738-6969 (in Hong Kong) - 1 yr old
OS: Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit - original OEM install

The dumps all point to NETw5s64.sys, a driver associated with Intel 5100 Wi-Fi. Please update it from the following link.

Thanks JaidynM! Was a little hard to find the driver - the "chooser" didn't list anything for the 5100, but I eventually found a checker utility on the Intel site. But been watching for the last couple of days with no more crashes.
