    BSOD Watchdog on Windows 10, Seemingly Random

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here. My computer has been fine until I updated it to windows 10 from win 8. I have been getting Watchdog violations randomly every 30 min to 3 hours since the update. One error report analyzed via WhoCrashed showed it might be my wifi adapter, so I updated that driver, but that hasn't fixed the problem. I will attach the bug reports below. Also sorry If I am doing anything incorrectly!

    Any Ideas?

    Be sure to update your Qualcomm network drivers

    Hi, and Thanks for the reply! I have updated the driver using the " Atheros driver for AR9287" But have been still having the same problems, which makes me think there is another problem somewhere else, or that this driver is still wack. Should I uninstall the driver then re-install? I might just disable or remove my wifi card to see if there is anything else causing it.

    Anything else that could be causing the problem?

    All crashes that I have analysed flagged the network drivers.

    You could try a few things yes,like
    1. Removing the drivers and installing again
    2. Trying different version of the drivers
    3. Removing the card

    Although per your description it sounds like driver issues, hardware problems can't be ignored.

    So most likely there is a problem with my wifi card drivers? I can mess around a little with older drivers maybe.

    I uninstalled the driver for my wireless card, then reinstalled. It said something malfunctioned or there was a virus messing with the drivers, so I uninstalled and restarted my computer. I'm running malwarebytes now, and reinstalled the newest drivers. It worked this time, saying nothing is wrong. I did not have that message while experiencing crashes, so I don't know what caused the message. Hopefully this fixed the problem, but only time will tell. Could be a few hours or a couple days to know if I am crash free.

    I'll keep you posted, and I'm taking any other suggestions too!

    I have symantec now, since it is free from my school. Full scanned a couple times and found some stuff, but still crashing. I'm going to try manually deleting the driver software, and using an old version. My wifi card is a TP-Link TL-WN881ND, but it reads as a qualcomm AR9287.

    Still getting the message:
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!KeBugCheckEx+0x0)

    Any other ideas? Thanks for your help!

    If you upload a new zip I may be get some ideas :)

    FYI, the ntkrnlmp and other similar files are never the actual cause, these files are the core of Windows.
    The KeBugCheckEx is the function that 'paints' the bluescreen, also never the reason of a bluescreen as it is being called when something earlier went wrong.
