So I've been getting many blue screens lately, and most of them are caused by a variety of drivers, but mostly ntoskrnl.exe. I know this by looking through the logs in BlueScreenView. I've been getting these for a good two months now, according to BlueScreenView. This has been really making me frustrated because sometimes I get a BSOD while gaming or doing work. The minidump files can be found in the .rar file below.

This extra information may help you also:

  1. I haven't tried using Driver Verifier
  2. I haven't tried using Memtest86+ to check if my RAM sticks are corrupt
  3. I haven't done a system restore (I don't really want to resort to this, data takes forever to back up and I got a lot of stuff on this computer)
  4. I haven't tried to load the "Last Good Configuration" ( Found the possible fix here, but I want to make sure i'm doing the right stuff here http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000646.htm )
  5. I HAVE tried updating my graphic card drivers, which is a nVidia GeForce 6150SE (I know, its poopy), but I still get some blue screens.
  6. I've done chkdsk /f, still getting blue screens

As for the loud buzzing noise, I honestly don't know what causes it.

Please help me, guys.

This happens in a minimal configuration? –  Ramhound Jul 15 at 1:33
    
@Ramhound What do you mean minimal configuration..? –  user346359 Jul 15 at 3:32

The Kernel is fine. The last driver which is called before your Widows crashes is netr28x.sys which is the Ralink 802.11 Wireless Adapter Driver. But it doesn't necessary mean that this driver caused the corruption.

*******************************************************************************

DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL (c5)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is
caused by drivers that have corrupted the system pool.  Run the driver
verifier against any new (or suspect) drivers, and if that doesn't turn up
the culprit, then use gflags to enable special pool.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000008, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: fffff800033bdb05, address which referenced memory

Update the driver to the latest version and if this doesn't fix it, activate driver verifier and upload the new dmp files.

The last crash is caused by a driver called networx.sys:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

I'm trying to update the driver by using this updater located at this link When I download it, it installs all of the files in a folder called SWSetup, but after it has done that, nothing pops up after. I went directly to the folder to try running the setup from there, but when I do, I see a bunch of command prompts appear and disappear in my taskbar, then the program compatibility window pops up for me. I tried restarting, and then checked the new version of the device, but it did not update. –  user346359 Jul 15 at 22:43
    
try the latest drivers from here: station-drivers.com/index.php/downloads/Drivers/Ralink/Wlan –  magicandre1981 Jul 16 at 4:10
    
OK, the installers run fine and everything else, but when I restart my computer and check in device manager to see if the drivers are updated or not, it's STILL at its old version. I even tried on the Administrator account, and no luck. I'm thinking of deleting the files manually and replacing them manually, or just deleting them and reinstalling them... Oh yeah, also, when I installed the drivers and restarted my computer, I got a bluescreen approximately 2-3 minutes after logging on. hal.dll caused it apparently... Do you want the minidump file? –  user346359 Jul 16 at 18:41
    
when you extract the Exe, there is also a drivers folder. Update the driver from the device manager: sevenforums.com/tutorials/… . And yes, share the new dmps. –  magicandre1981 Jul 17 at 3:59
    
Thank you! That method worked. As for the dmp file, here it is: mega.co.nz/… –  user346359 Jul 17 at 21:07
