    BSOD - typically when I am away from the computer

    I have been getting multiple BSOD. Computer seems to work fine. I usually leave it on and it goes to sleep. Randomly when I come back sometimes it has gone to BSOD. It is now happening every day to every other day. I've tried updating most of the drivers. The only time I have triggered a BSOD is when I try to update the audio driver (Realtek HD Audio). I've tried everything I can think of - scanning for malware / virus. Updating all the drivers. I ran a memory test as well which was OK and can't seem to figure out the cause. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The error that it gives is IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal. I've attached the dump file and other info as requested. Thank you.

    I updated Genie. I'm not sure about which driver you want me to update for Netgear. It has the latest firmware and couldn't find anything else to download. The Netgear router is a fairly recent addition. The BSOD started happening before I changed my router. I'll let you know if I get any more. Thanks for your help.

    I had zero problems with this computer for a couple of years. I'm not feeling the love from my computer any more, not sure it misses me.

    Good to know that you updated Geanie. npf.sys is Geanie. OK, now use the computer normally. Let us know for any further BSOD.

    Seems to have fixed the problem. Could have sworn that the BSOD started before I installed Netgear. Thanks for the help. No crash for 6-7 days now.
