Can a faulty net adapter cause BSOD?

  1. I am getting frequent BSODs lately and my computer restarts randomly. I suspect its the net adapter, cause when I remove it, it doesn't happen. I bought a new one, replaced it, but the old one is still listed in Devices. I can't uninstall it, so I disabled it.
    Here is the dump file I got from the BSOD. I need help to determine if its really a problem with the net adapter, not with something else. Thank You.

    The crash dump does not point towards the net adapter or its driver but the D1 error code usually relates to a faulty/corrupt driver.

    What is the problem with uninstalling the old driver, that is usually fairly straightforward.

    Are you still getting BSOD's with the new adapter installed?
