    Can you post a few of your latest minidump files? They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. ZIP them and attach them to your next post.​

    when did it start happening? a week ago, etc. does not have to be exact! I would do a virus scan first. if that does not find anything, back up your pc to when you know for sure it was not happening. only prob if you back up to far might loose some of your work.

    good luck

    It's a well known issue with Linksys.

    i really didnt think the problem came from the linksys device
    it used to be connected to other computers and worked fine without any blue screens

    Like I said, you might need a new driver.

    BSODs will create those minidump files. They clearly point to that RNDISMP.SYS driver.

    Suite yourself. :)
