Hello Adgj533

I've looked at both crash dumps which occurred at the end of 2018 and they both point to the network driver netwsw02.sys as being the problem. This driver needs updating. Use the Intel website if the Laptop website does not have an update.

NETwNs64     ___ Intel(R) Wireless  ___ Intel(R) Wireless  Kernel        Manual     Running    OK         TRUE        FALSE        684,032    2,072,576  0      5/3/2014 5:39:36 PM    C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\Netwsw02.sys         4,096
Report back to let me know if this works.

hey Phil, My specs were out of date and I updated it so please take a look. My motherboard is Asus z97-k and I looked at their website and no new drivers. But I did download latest drivers for intelwebsite. I am using a network card to connect my desktop to Wifi, I don't remember the make and model but if you want I can open up the case and take a look. I will try updating the games again and will post here if the issue is solved or not. @philc43
