Windows 7: BSOD during downloading of large files, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If it turns out to be a hardware issue, then the situation would be sad. Because the failing thing is the onboard NIC, a component of the motherboard.

But, a fresh clean reinstall is always a good idea, there is no doubt at all.

Well, I reinstalled Windows, and my computer seems to be doing fairly well. Been running driver verifier, and there hasn't been any blue screens yet, so I'm hopeful I'll keep driver verifier running for a while longer just to make sure that nothing horrible is happening.
If nothing horrible happens in a day or two, I'll mark the thread as solved. Thank you so much for your help! :)
