    This error is very difficult to pin down as what the cause is but it does have to do with hardware. Reading your minidump it cited the Windows OS driver raspti.sys which is a Windows network driver. Usually OS drivers are too general to be of much help.

    The other thing of note is that spotify.exe was in the mix which is the executible belonging to Spotify.

    I would try the following: Update your NIC/Wireless drivers and see if this brings stability.

    Hmm alright, what does it actually have to do with Spotify tho?

    I will try updating my drivers and see now, thanks for help.
