    Hello guys. My client has an Alienware machine that's been suffering from blue screens and I cannot solve the problem. Here's what I have so far.

    - Memtest, No Errors
    - HD Tune, No Errors
    - Reimaged from Recovery, Still BSOD
    - Replaced GPU, Still BSOD

    It's happening must commonly when the computer gets shutdown. It hangs for 5-10 minutes. Upon boot, Windows will display the error. The DMP files are attached to this thread. Can anyone assist me. I am thinking about removing the two HDD's in RAID0 and installing a single drive, which I would then install a vanilla version of Windows on there to see if it solves any problems.

    Please do let me know.

    Like I said, I've swapped the GPU twice including the graphics drivers. I've also formatted the system, but from the Dell/Alienware recovery, not the vanilla version of Windows.

    Yes, to answer your first question. The 9F stop code has been the most common and occurs upon shutdown intermittently. Any suggestions? Do you think my idea of removing the two drives in RAID0 and installing a testing a drive with a vanilla version of Windows is good?

    Thanks in advance.

    Atheros Wireless LAN device driver
    I would go for the easier option and update the driver.

    Okay, great, I'll give this a shot. Do you recommend going through the PC's manufacturer or component manufacturer for the latest drivers? Also, are there any applications that aren't gimmicky, which can help track and/or update older drivers?

    Check the pc's manufacturer website they may have said driver.
    Some use online driver scans but they can find and ask you to install an outdated driver.

    Memory corruption is also listed from the 12th or 13th of January 2015 linked to CyberLink Player.
    Re-install the above.
    Did you run the Memtest overnight or for a least 8 passes?
    It is best to run a full scan on individual Ram sticks if you can.
    Or run the test but if any errors are shown - then remove all sticks of Ram and test each Ram stick one at a time and in different slots.
