Windows 7: Persistent BSODs, random reasons, different hard drives, clean install

Persistent BSODs, random reasons, different hard drives, clean install

Hi All,

Really hope someone can help and I don't have some dead HW. I'm currently running Memtest and will update this thread with results, dumps etc after the test finished and I can access the PC's HDD's - just wanted to get the thread started.

So this morning I go to wake up my PC and find it has BSOD overnight for the first time ever, rebooted and got BSOD again after noticing AVG wanted to reboot. Thought it might be related to an overnight AVG update so uninstalled AVG... got BSOD again. Noticed there were windows updates overnight too so restored to last week. BSOD continues with different reasons.

So I decided a clean HDD and OS was a good idea, added a new HDD and started to install from USB and got BSOD 3 times trying to install with different reasons. Eventually installed clean OS and all drivers and then once again got BSOD

Will post dumps and update specs from effected PC ASAP.

I have came across this annoying BSOD issue ever since I re installed windows. According to blue screen viewer it is caused by athurx.sys. I have learned this file is tied to bad drivers for my TP-LINK TL-WN721N WiFi adapter. However my drivers for it are already at the latest :mad:. I feel like...
