    Your issue is with the driver NETw5s64.sys which is an Intel Wireless WiFi Link Adapter.

    Go to Dell's website, find you exact model and update the latest wireless/network/NIC drivers for your system that they offer.

    Hi thanks for that but I think that driver only caused the last crash. (NETw5s64.sys) I saw that on BlueScreenView.

    The ones I am concerned about are all the previous ones that only show: (ntoskrnl.exe+eacd2)

    Can you see what are causing those?

    I just updated the Wifi to the latest and I am assuming thats what caused the last one but this has been happening for ages.

    That driver was cited in all the minidumps. ntoskrnl.exe is a core Windows OS driver. The thing with OS drivers is that they are usually not the cause. They more so point out that there is a problem rather than pointing to where the problem lies.

    Have you previously gone to Dell's website and updated your wireless drivers?
