Windows 7: Random BSOD, Ram passed memory test

01 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Premium 32bit
Random BSOD, Ram passed memory test

First thing I did was Test my memory, then I reseated it and tested it again, no issues found.

I have had previous issues with my GPU driver not responding, I hope that it is the GPU because I planned to replace it anyway.

Four crashes twice while the computer was in sleep mode and the other times while I was using it. Blue screen pops up and computer restarts.

Sorry I didn't copy and info from the notification after restart.
I did however upload the files via SF Diagnostic tool.

I hope it is something like a driver or something I can replace cause I can afford another computer.

I you need any other info just ask I hope I can help you help me.

Thank you

Haha ... same here.

Go to Support | Dell US ... search for any possible driver update for your DW1525 (802.11n) WLAN PCIe Card. Apply the update.

Let us know for any further BSOD.

caused by drivers using improper addresses.

I was hoping that was it but I searched for drivers in device manager and Dell's website both said it was up to date. I ran the Dell diagnostic and the only issue it for was I didn't have enough Dell Brand software. So it made me install diagnostic tools and what not, nothing relate to this problem I don't think.

I have only been using the card for about two months but all the crashes have been in the past week, with no software or hardware changes (other than windows updates) before two months ago. Due to that my brother suspects RAM even after the tests passed.

Thank you for help thus far I did in fact reseat my WLAN card when I reseated my RAM, no blue screen yet That would be nice if that was it.

Dell must have drivers later of 2009 as yours. And they have. Dont take any utility but search using your computers model number.

We will want to know the situation after updating the driver.

Ok, let us know how it goes.

If needed, we may try to search the driver from the chip maker (athr) itself.
