    Comments:
    My laptop had been working fine and dandy until I came back from Minnesota to Florida, on the 22nd. I don't recall installing a lot of programs. I did install Mass Effect, not sure if that has a lot to do with it. Also some updated drivers for my graphics card, thinking I might downgrade the drivers (is that possible?).Somewhere along the lines, I started getting Blue Screen'd, not totally super frequent, but a couple times a day (I use my computer a lot).

    I researched this problem, and some concerns were raised about overheating, though using programs (in particular Everest), it didn't seem like it reached overbearing temperatures i.e. never got past 60 degrees celcius.

    At this, I'm utterly lost as to how to proceed. I've thought about buying of them compressed-air cans and trying to clean it out, see if that helps, but I figured I oughta ask more experienced people. Help?

    tl;dr
    I'm getting blue screen'd, details above, haven't really installed a lot of things barring Mass Effect and some drivers for graphics cards.

    Please help. : (

    Conclusion
    22 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Only 15 are included in this report. 2 third party drivers have been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

    pneteth.sys (PdaNet Broadband Adapter Driver, June Fabrics Technology Inc.)

    netw5v64.sys (Intel® Wireless WiFi Link Driver, Intel Corporation)

    If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.

    It seems that there might be a problem with the network adapter. uninstall the adapter and uninstall the drivers. Then make sure windows is up to date and check on line to see if you have the latest drivers for your network card. You also need to check your memory. go to http://www.memtest86.com/ and download the .iso image and burn it to a disc. Then test the memory one stick at a time. You could also pull out one stick of memory now and see if the pc crashes. If it does then swap the sick out for the other one and see what happens.

    This is embarrassing but...how do I know what to uninstall? Like, how do I unstill the adapter? What exactly is the adapter?
