Windows 7: BSOD when surfing Internet

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
BSOD when surfing Internet

I have a notebook with a brand emachine d720

At first, my notebook is installed with Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and running normally for more than 2 months.

Calamity occurs 1 week ago, when I use my notebook to surfing the internet using wifi, it happens a BSOD. However, when I use my notebook to do ordinary tasks, such as, typing, listening to music, or play video, BSOD does not appear.

I tried to analyze Minidump and the problem is the file: ntkrnlpa.exe

I had to reinstall windows more than 5 times, but always BSOD appears when used to surf the internet.

First I thought it was caused by the Mozilla Firefox browser, but I've tried using Google Chrome / Opera and the result is the same, BSOD still appears.

Finally, I decided to reinstall my notebook with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, BSOD still appears but not as often as when the notebook is installed with Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I tried to analyze the Minidump again, this time due to the file: ntoskrnl.exe

All my drivers are updated using the latest drivers, including the bios.
I've checked the RAM using Memtest for more than 4 hours and no errors.
I've checked the Harddrive and there is no badsector.

Please help me solve this problem
Here I attach some Minidump files when using Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and 64bit

Looks like your network adapter driver bcmwl664.sys is causing the problem. I suggest going here and downloading the latest driver: eMachines Support: Drivers and Downloads

If the problems persist, look for other versions of that driver.

I give up

Finally, i reinstall the laptop with Vista Ultimate 32bit, and no BSOD comes out.

I still wonder, what's the problem with emachine d720 and Windows 7?

It's obviously a driver issue. You just need to play around with different drivers until you find one that works.

I suggest uninstalling the network driver completely in Windows 7. DO NOT download a new one, but use the default one Windows finds.

If that doesn't work, try installing the Vista drivers in compatibility mode.

Thank you Jonathan

I need this notebook, tomorrow. So I can check if there is a holiday or perhaps I'll check again when I've got a new notebook.

Sorry to bother you.
Thanks again.
