    I can't tell you how many times I've run into that driver error. I've reinstalled win7 an insane amount of times and it kept coming back. As soon as I turned auto updates off for non-windows based things, it never came up again. It almost always started right after I updated my office 2007 through windows update. Do you have that and have you updated it? That could be an issue or it could just be strange coincidence, but again since I reinstalled win7 again and turned off the office updates I've never had that driver issue since.

    Good luck to you!

    I do have office, can't say I've installed any kind of update in the past 48 hours so maybe it's not that, nor have I installed any new drivers either.

    Come to think of it though I was having BSOD's the other week due to a faulty PCI WLan card, but it stopped on it's own, I kind of have a gut feeling it is still to do with the WLan card... maybe I'm wrong.

    Well to be honest if I did that I would be without the net for hours if not days waiting for a BSOD which possibly might not come.

    However I've changed my WLan card for another one of the same brand & model from a sister rig and so far I've had no problem's.

    Him I've gotten your first two BSOD's when trying to overclock my Phenom Processor, so those are hardware related and the last one I would get randomly on my laptop.

    nwifi.sys... It's definitely the WLAN card / its drivers.

    Get new drivers, or try a different WLAN card with different drivers.

    if nwifi.sys itself is a system file, try repairing it.

    From what I know so far this is just a 64bit driver issue, I've been using the same card and a 32bit driver on my sister rig and never a problem.

    Is there anyone here who user's Windows 7 64bit with a Marvell Liberties WLan card?

    Bad pool call is a memory, or memory controller error. Check your memory or loosen the timings and try to replicate the events that caused the error.

    Even more reason to let memtest run to make sure everything is ok.

    ARGH!!! Another BSOD this time it has happened while using a different WLan card, well infact it's not a card it's a USB Dongle, but anyways the BSOD is below. It is obviously something to do with just my wireless as it's happened on 3 different WLan cards/dongle.

    I've now posted 2 of the 3 BSOD's...

    The stop code's are different, however to me it clearly is a wireless connection error in some form, maybe?

    Have you tried letting Windows assign a driver to it?

    Have you tried installing the driver in Vista compatibility mode?

    The driver installed for the WLan card/s is the one windows assign's.

    As for my USB WLan dongle I have to install the driver via the Netgear software.

    Also another thing to add is that I've not had a problem in the past 3 month's of using Windows 7.

    I may be wrong here but they seem to happen when I'm using the internet for streaming TV or other mid/high level usage.
