    Hi,

    I randomly have been getting BSOD's since 2 days after my machine has been running fine for months. I have no idea what to do, after some google'ing I already did a /sfc scan. to no avail (mostly because it can't finish because of BSOD's),

    apperantly some outdated driver could be the cause of this. As a last resort I'm sharing my Minidump files and I hope you guys could help me.

    Kind regards, Alibambam!

    Indicates Atheros go to the computer manufacturers site download the latest Atheros driver - more than likely the wireless adapter driver

    If Windows reports that a newer driver is installed ignore that and install the one you have downloaded.

    It MAYBE that Windows updates are also configured for driver updates and even Windows 8 does not it appears always select the correct driver, especially it seems to me in the case of wireless adapter drivers.

    If after downloading the driver the problem is solved post back and I will guide you through what to do, next.
    Of course please post back whatever the situation.

    The reason I mention that is that some people, if the problem is solved, post it is solved, and then leave the matter without waiting for us to explore what caused the problem to arise.

    I have checked the other dumps they do not provide any more useful information than that one above.
    I see it is an Asus notebook - so go to the Asus site for the driver

    The problem is, the Atheros site for my drivers is a total mess. Secondly I had a problem with a specific type of university-network where I could NOT connect with the newest version of drivers on Windows 8 because of The OS interacting with the specific type of wireless network my uni used.

    I'll check the Atheros site again later today to search for the newest drivers.

    No, that was actually a different problem (which yes, that was on Windows 7). me not being able to connect to the wireless network at university was when I upgraded with the same machine to Windows 8. I resolved that problem by installing an older version of the drivers.

    OK I am going offline for sometime until about 1900 UK time it is now 1340

    As far as I am able to ascertain this is the driver you need
    Version: 10.0.0.75
    Release: 2012-08-01 [August '12]
    OS: Windows 8 32/64bit
    Status: WHQL
    File: win78-10.0.0.75-whql.zip

    I would if it were me check the Asus site if not you may wish to try this one, but it really is a question of TRY.
    When these drivers for 8 are not available on the OEM site it can prove a little difficult.

    You could try this
    http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=37&system=5

    scroll down for the Windows 8 one, the difficulty with this is that Atheros make the chip for the wireless card but at this time we do not know what the actual card is.
    It is just the same as Nvidia or AMD making the graphics processing chip, but the card may be any one of a dozen makes and the generic Nvidia or AMD driver is not always the correct one​

    I checked the Asus Support page again: they still didn't add a windows 8 os for my model.

    However when I checked the windows 7 page, they suddenly list a complete new set of drivers, this was different a couple of months ago
    http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=Eee+PC+1015PX&p=20&s=1


    It also used to be the atheros drivers, and now they suddenly list "AW-NB047 Wireless Network Adapter for Windows 7."

    ok I updated with the drivers you gave me, however I ran into the problem again with not being able to connect to the network of my university. So I actually had to rollback to be able to post this :)

    Well you have encountered the problem that 100`s of other people have.
    If you upgrade to Windows 8 without checking the compatibility of the hardware and ensuring that drivers are available, this unfortunately is the result

    All I can recommend is that you search, as I would until and if you find a driver that will work.

    If you cannot, see if you can borrow a wireless usb adapter for which there are windows 8 drivers and if that solves the BSOD, they are relatively inexpensive, and may be the easiest solution.
