Windows 7: BSOD, usually when downloading STOP 0x0000007f

BSOD, usually when downloading STOP 0x0000007f

Hi, all,

I am getting sporadic BSODs which I think only (or at least mostly) happen when I'm downloading large files. My laptop has actually just been physically repaired new lid, new base, new screen and that didn't solve the problem, so I am guessing it's probably a driver issue.

Hope someone can help. :-)

The problem seems to be with the outdated Atheros network driver. Update it from here:
