Ill see if I can find those. Is the NIC driver different from my wireless driver?

Yes. You could look in device manager under network adapters. If you right click on them, choose properties, go to driver tab, then click on driver details, it will tell you which it is actually using. Easy way to tell which it belongs to.

As H2SO4 says (which means to listen lol) - bios update is next step to try. Also in case you missed it; more words from the wise - "update chipset drivers."

Did you update from here? http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear...&FamilyId=1783

No probs mate.

Despite torrentg's vote of confidence (thanks ), it's really almost impossible to tell from the minidumps just why the NIC driver (I'm old fashioned in the sense that I use "NIC" for both ethernet and wifi) has gone inactive. Therefore, all we can really hope to do is to update those portions of the software environment which work with the NIC driver, in the hope that the problem -whatever it may be - will go away.

There's rarely any real "debugging" where minidumps are concerned. It's more a case of educated guesswork based on the component which appears to be experiencing problems.

Though I haven't had any BSOD since Ii last posted (knock on wood) I was unable to update my chipset or BIOS. Every time I tried to run the .exe for either it would basically say that I had the wrong version. I'm not sure if the problem is fixed. When i check the wireless drivers the Net drivers is still there. Is that okay? In the wireless driver details section I have ...system32\DRIVERS\NETw5s64.sys and ...system32\drivers\vwifibus.sys along with two .dlls ending in NETw5(c/r)64.dll. Is this correct?
