I've recently started having a few BSOD crashes happen on my rig which suprised me as I never got them in the past aside from having a faulty graphics driver. I used bluescreenview and it shows that all 3 times the cause was NDIS.SYS a NDIS 6.20 driver issue. I'm not sure what this means but I know I had a pretty similar report as I recall when I installed a new driver for my nvidia card and was forced to revert to an older driver. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the quick response, I took the advice of the link you posted and downloaded a new network driver and the setup says it cannot find a NIC. I am using networking hardware onboard from my motherboard from asus and i don't see why it would be a switch up. My motherboard model is m2n-vm dvi and I downloaded the Atholes LAN Driver V1.0.0.18 for Win7 32bit/Win7 64bit--(WHQL).

The Atheros driver is wireless...is your connection wireless?

Ndis.sys problems generally are related to Internet connectivity.

That link previously provided on drivers...is somewhat inaccurate about the reasons drivers need to be replaced. It's not because they are necessarily outdated (all of a sudden) but more likely that key files have become damaged, rendering the drivers incapable of proper execution.

No my connection is through a ethernet cable so I don't know why my motherboard company would be suggesting wireless drivers. I haven't had any run ins with another BSOD lately, I just bought a new router, I'm gonna see how things go.
