Windows 7: BSOD On Sleep - Driver not less than or equal

27 Oct 2013   #11




I made sure that my dump files were up to snuff with the configurations you linked. They were. So I was just waiting for more BSODs to check the dump.

However, now I am having another issue that may or may not be related. For periods, when I am doing anything that uses a lot of resources (namely online gaming or streaming) the computer either completely freezes or just shuts down. It then seems not to do so for a few days. The computer barely feels warm at all or anything. I do not see anything in the BSOD dumps. I looked through my event viewer after doing some research but all I could find was that it said the shutdown was unexpected and then some codes. Is there anything I can do to find out what is going on?

Thank you again.

Although I do see a BSOD event from a week ago that I was not even aware of. It seems to still be something with the wireless driver even after I reinstalled it. I will attach the BSOD dump. Is it possible that the driver I have is only for 32x systems rather than my 64x? The Atheros site is in Czech so it is very hard to make sure I am getting the right driver. Could that be the issue?

New BSOD - Driver Corrupted_Expool

Hello all,

I got another BSOD. I re installed drivers (wireless and graphics) last week after I was having issues. Things went well until today when I got a BSOD while watching streaming online. I attached the bsod log from the log tool.\

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sorry, I don't remember the exact error because it flashes and disappears so quickly. This has started to happen more frequently but hasn't happened more than once a day or so.
