    PAGE FAULT BSOD when torrenting?

    I'm getting recently many "page fault in nonpaged area" BSOD and I think it happens only when I'm using torrent downloads.
    I saw some related posts with similar issues, but they all about DELL laptops, and I own Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro with windows 10 home edition that came with it.
    According to what I saw in the dump files and in other threads, I understood it may be related to my wireless adapter (Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter)
    Of course I checked for updates from Lenovo, but I'm using the last one (7.35.307.0_WHQL)

    I'm attaching the zip you request, but I have another MEMORY.DMP in C:\windows which was created during the last crash.
    It's kinda big (100 Mb zipped), so tell me if you want me to upload it and where.
    I'm attaching also the event viewer logs which I cleaned right before the last crash, you can see the critical and the reboot at around 18:30 GMT+0 .

    Please tell me if anything else is needed, I'm willing to send all the information and logs that require to fix this issue.

    Hi tomg23,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    I'm very sorry for the delay, there aren't many people in this section and I am self quite busy.

    Your network driver has been flagged in the crashes until 28th.
    I suggest to check Lenovo for driver updates for the network driver.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I already checked for updates but there are none :/ this is the latest...
    I saw some similar issues with DELL laptops also with network drives so I thought maybe it has to do something with windows.

    Try to install the newest version anyway, it could be that this driver is corrupted and corruption is only solved with a reinstallation of the driver.

    Well, I uninstalled the latest Lenovo driver and left with an older version of the driver provided by broadcom (screen shot below).
    Until now, there were no BSOD.
    I hope that solved the problem, but I don't know what are the bad effects of this downgrade, and I can't be sure there will be no BSOD in the future.

    No bluescreens is never garanteed.

    The side-effect of this action is that you must update eventually, because this driver will give trouble in the future.
