Windows 7: Apparent random BSOD issue

Apparent random BSOD issue - possible capture card issue? netio.sys?

Hi all,

Attached are the files required as per your sticky in this thread.

As far as I remember ever since I built my PC 2 months or so ago I've had this issue. But recently it's becoming worse (specs are in my profile).

Just to add, I have an Avermedia C985 Live Gamer capture card. This possibly could be causing the issue as I have been using it more recently, but I swear it happens when I am not using it also. But thought I should post here first to see if you guys can see an issue before I remove it. Or my arrangement of hard drives might be causing an issue. I have no idea.

Some days I can go fine without a blue screen while using it, but this morning I had 2 within 15 minutes of each other while I was arranging my monitors around via Screen Properties the first time, then the second time I was just sitting on my Desktop. So those dumps might be of more interest to look at.

May I also add I reseated my RAM, updated my drivers to the latest video driver (been happening on a few versions now) and other drivers detected by MSI Live Update software. Nothing is overclocked when it happens either.

Thanks a bunch if you guys do have a look.

Just ran WhoCrashed and the past several BSODs have been caused by netio.sys. The others may have been from overclocks. Not sure what this means?

The BSOD is caused by Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 driver.

Update it from Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 7

Also, uninstall Networx, at least as a test. It is the reason behind a good lot of network related BSODs.

Ah right forgot about Networx. Probably because that was a recent install. Will do anyways for testing.

Will update the driver now. Thanks for the response.

Updating to 15.8.0 version of Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230 driver via their auto detect. You think that should fix it after uninstalling Networx?

Edit 2:
It blue screened when I installed it, lol. Hopefully won't happen again (says it's updated now).
