    BSOD caused by nwifi.sys


    Hey for the past week, am getting a BSOD at random intervals due to nwifi.sys. I know this has to do something with my wifi card, so when i tried to update or rollback my driver it crashes again. I even tried sfc /scannow and it showed no errors. When i tried DISM there was problem downloading the image, so i used windows10upgrade9252.exe to resolve corrupted system files. Nothing seems to work. I'm out of ideas now, so could you please help me with this issue? I'm attaching my DM log files here: Attachment 129268

    Unfortunately, your lone .dmp file is damaged/corrupted. Some of the drivers are showing dates from the 1980s, and one even shows a year of 2037. The stack for the .dmp is unreadable.

    We really could use more than one .dmp, anyway. You may have to wait until you've had several (don't do any disk cleaning in between) and then upload the files again. It's easier to spot patterns with multiple .dmp files.

    I have added more dump files now. hope this solves it


    Sorry for the delayed reply. I have had four more crashes yesterday, attaching their dump file now:Attachment 129810 . Hope this helps you in figuring out the problem. Forgot to mention this before, before the system crashes my internet speed reduces drastically to almost like using a dsl line and then it crashes.

    ALL four dumps point to nwifi.sys

    Nwifi.sys is a Wifi driver from Windows (as the name implies).

    My suggestions, update the network drivers and your VPN.
