Win 7 laptop, 4 blue screens over last 2 week, seemingly different causes..

I'm not even sure how to begin on this one. I've got a laptop running Windows 7 that up to fairly recently has been stable. No new softwrae installs, just regular windows and adobe patching. Looking at the crash files via nirsoft's bluescreenview each crash was caused by a different driver.

1st one error is Bad Pool Caller, driver causing the problem usbport.sys

2nd one error is System Thread Exception Not Handled, driver causing the problem is listed as Unknown_Module_fffff800.

3rd one error is Memory Management, driver causing the problem is ntoskrnl.exe

4th one error is System Service Exception, driver causing the problem is tcpip.sys


This is like a global meltdown on this machine.... any ideas besides wiping the thing and reinstalling Win 7?

If it were just dying, I'd say power supply.  In this case, I'd suspect memory.

Crash dmp points to netw5v64.sys...is a intel wireless software driver.
Go to
\SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\netw5v64.sys and rename it to netw5v64.old

Or
 install the latest driver for intel wireless software.

Yes ..i am 99.99 %  sure ...faulty driver is intel wireless software driver (netw5v64.sys ) and updating it will resolve the problem.

Alrighty I'll give that a go this evening when the user is done with the laptop for the day. I'm going to probably have to leave this question open for a week to see if this stabilize on the laptop. I'll update the question one way or the other.

it is always good to test the ram ; use memtest86+ from www.memtest.org or from UBCD : http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
