  1. I have numerous BSODs in a day.

    My internet will drop, seconds after reconnecting the computer crashes into a BSOD and then restarts automatically from the BSOD within 2-3 seconds.

    I am not aware of any new or existing software installed that could be causing the problem.

    I have left it on without any programs running and the problem has still occured.

    All of these crashes has been caused by gwapci.sys (0xD1 error code) file, which is a component of your PCI/WAN modem's driver stack. Time stamp on this driver tells it is from 2003 period, now there is also a probability that your modem is failing as some times this specific error occurs due to hardware issues. But before going that far, check with your modem's manufacturer to see whether a new driver is available for your device, if so, uninstall the currently installed driver, then reboot, and install the new driver.
