    My recommendation is to either update/reinstall the drivers/software for the TP-Link card or remove it to see if that solves the bluescreens.

    With analysis I went back till 4th of this month, all of the dumps are caused by the drivers of the TP-Link card.

    There is also a possibility for updating the BIOS, but the more recent version is a BETA and I don't recommend to use BETA unless you're willing to deal with more problems and are prepared for stability and possible boot problems.

    Thanks for the update. I have been looking for a win 10 driver for the tp-link card but can't seem to find one. I'll dig around a little more, or could I delete the previous driver and replace with win 8 driver?

    I'm having troubles finding the right driver that will work for my wifi card.
    My wifi card is a TP-Link TL-WN881ND, but it reads as a qualcomm AR9287.
    I have no clue what to do. I tried the latest qualcomm one but it still crashes, and I cant force an older version since it tells me I'm up to date when I try to use an older one. How can I force an old driver?

    Removing the driver first before installing the old driver might help, it worked always for me.

    I can't seem to find a driver that works without crashing randomly. Might just buy a different one. Any good cheap win 10 compatible ones?

    Good and cheap are a lot, w10 compatible? not sure, you need to do some research for that.
