Windows 7: BSOD - minidumps incl.

BSOD - minidumps incl.

Hey all. I've been experiencing more and more frequent BSOD. I'm super newbsauce, by the way.

I'm thinking it has to do with my external HDs (one eSATA, one USB). The BSODs occur both when when few programs are running or when I'm running tons. Troubleshooting hasn't got me anywhere.

Attached are the minidumps.

I'm on 7 64 Premium.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Just been thru most of the dumps & nearly all of them are showing
Bugcheck 0xA or 0x9F
nearly all of them pointing at L1E62x64.sys
This is a driver file for an Atheros NIC or ethernet controller
Try updating this driver or if its already the current version try removing & reinstalling it & see if it helps

Ok, thanks for the quick reply.

No update was available for Windows 7, so I installed the Vista 64 drivers.

I'll update on what happens.

Again, thanks for your help.

Thanks again, it's been nearly 2 weeks, and I haven't had a BSOD since reinstalling the drivers.

Incidentally, for anyone else having the same problem with Atheros' drivers, the Vista drivers (x64) didn't work for me, but the old XP ones did, which I found at the Acer website.

I'm running Windows 7 64 pro.
