Hi and welcome

Well this one was probably caused by nwifi.sys which is part of your wifi/lan driver

I would
update the wifi driver and the ones listed below
Run a system file check to verify and repair you system files
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

let us know the results

Well after running the scan and rebooting my computer and running the scan again it said the "integrity" was fine.

Btw how would you update those drivers?

And also I had a feeling that my Wifi adapter was causing my computer to crash as everytime I put it to sleep I have to disconnect it and reconnect it to make it detect the wifi spot again, and when I reconnect it most of the times, it crashed and gives me the BSOD.
