    0xD1 errors are casused by either a faulty driver or buggy software. At this point there is no information that will help us pinpoint trhe cause. Please give us your system specs in your profile.

    Very few of us will install uploaders in order to read minidumps. However, on your next post please notice the Attach Management button at the bottom. You can attach your minidump files on your next reply.

    Zip your files first and then attach. You can Zip up to 5 together.

    All three minidumps cite the same culprit Netw4v64.sys which is the onboard intel wireless driver.

    It appears that this driver and Vista don't play well together. See if you can update your wireless drivers.

    Thanks Route44

    Can you do another one for me?
    I've been stable until today, my laptop just turned off and restarted. -- I haven't done anything out of the unusual --
    Except I left my BitTorrent on..closed the lid on my laptop and started to watch a movie streaming from my laptop to my ps3 using TVersity. Problem Reports and Errors says Bluescreen again :(

    Here's my minidump.

    Hope you are ok with this. If not just let me know

    Cheers m8
    Perhaps you can give me instructions on how you are able to read the minidumps?

    Thanks again Route44!

    I can't open a .tmp file. You need to simply post your minidumps or if you have 5 or more then do a simple Zip and attach, Have you checked to see if you are infected. Bittorrent and BSODs always raise red flags for me.

    Try the hotfix first as sent12b suggests. As I previously stated Vista and these drivers don't get along but I wasn't aware of the Hotfix. Let us know if it works and if not I'll read your minidumps.

    I'll look on their website today after work for the hotfix.
    I've never called Microsoft for anything before. Do they charge for services like this?

    Update: I've updated my wireless drivers from HP awhile ago when i got my first set of blue screens.
