I have gotten the same BSOD twice in a row, yet i have no clue what is causing it. The only recent change has been a new router, but i don't think that is the cause. The second to last one happened while watching Two and a Half Men on the official website (CBS maybe?). The last one happened while i was downstairs, and nothing was playing on my laptop. I attached the last two dump files and the last xml log file thingy.

Thanks for your help.

Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4 crash dumps have been found and analyzed.
Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

The errors seem to point to a driver issue, Can you list the name and model # of the laptop? also, try this. Click the Start button. In the Search box, type Event Viewer, and then, in the list of results, double-click Event Viewer.

When event veiwer is up look to the top left for "Windows logs"

click the arrow to expand it. Then click on "Applications" to bring up the events and they will show in the center window. Do the same with "System" and the other logs as well

You should look for events that correspond with the time that you experienced issues with your system.

Scroll through and look for errors. You can hold down the
"Ctrl" key and then start clicking on events in order to save them for posting.
Now look down at the bottom right and you will see the options to copy or save. Now just pick the method you want to use to save the information and then post them in your next reply.

The times given by WhoCrashed do not match up with the times given in the Event Viewer, but every error in the time span near the crash, the problem has been Bonjour Service (Part of Apple/iTunes). What do i do now?

What did the Bonjour Service error say?? can you post it?

Anyways do this. Download Autoruns from this link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx Make sure you save the file in a location easy to find.

Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".

The program will open and show a list of items with a small box
on the left side of each entry.
Make sure that you are on the tab that says "Everything"

Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking
the entry and select Delete.

Go to File then click Save.
When you click save It will try to save the file as Autoruns.arn
you will need to save it as a text file or "Autoruns.txt" to a location
you can easely find.
Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
Next you can upload the Autoruns.txt file as an attachment by clicking the
"Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the reply window of this forum.
Once on the Advanced reply look up at the tool bar and you will see a small
paper clip. click on it and it will show you a option to upload the file from your
computer. You can click brows and select the Autoruns.txt file to upload.

The "Bonjour" service often causes Bsods.
It is a worthless program and offers nothing for your use.
Open "Services.msc". Scroll down to "Bonjour Service" and disable it. (Double click and disable)

It appears it was my wireless adapter driver that caused the crash. Unfortunately, i am unable to find a new driver. Anywhere.

Can't help you if you can't provide the information people ask you for. The more information you provide the more likely others reading this post will be able to help you..... It's your choice. Uninstall the wireless card and remove the wireless card manager and reboot and see if it stops the bsod. Then you can try to reinstall it. That's all I can help you with until you provide more info. Dunno, need more info. You can also try http://www.w7forums.com/use-chkdsk-check-disk-t448.html
