  1. Laptop crashes regularly mainly when streaming video. As far as I can work out this is a Blue Screen issue but I'm not technical in the slightest so might need walking through any fixes.

    Hello dub,
    Can you please attach latest five minidumps after zipping them in a single file with your next post? You can find those in C:\windows\minidump. Please also provide us with your notebook make/model/specs etc.

    let me know if there's anything else you need to know. Any help would be hugely appreciated. It seems to happen when browsing, watching youtube etc. could this be something to do with having a second screen plugged in, i've tried to update all drivers but not sure if they're all successful.

    As requested in my previous post please attach all available minidumps with your next post after zipping them with winzip or 7zip.

    You can locate minidump files in the following folder:

    Almost all of your crashes are caused by your Huawei USB adapter's NDIS miniport driver (i.e. ewusbnet.sys).

    I would suggest you to uninstall your USB broadband adapter's software from your computer. Reboot, then attach it to a different USB port and re-install its driver/software and see whether this improves anything. Also check with your internet service provider, they may have posted an update/patch for your USB adapter's driver to address any compatibility issues.

    Amazing, thanks so much for this. It's for my vodafone mobile broadband which has already caused me more stress than i can tell you, rather then reinstalling it i think i'll just chuck it in the bin!!
