First, fill out your system specs. Click the link in my signature to do it.

Second, where did you get your drivers? Did you install drivers?

I ask about the drivers, because your minidump points to your Atheros driver causing the BSOD.

Good start on the specs. Here is a procedure that will enable you to fill in some info which needs to be there. Unfortunately, our canned tool for updating your specs could benefit from some modernization.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.



Run the script which I include and attach the resulting computerinfo.txt file to your next post.
