I have a Toshiba Satellite C50-A-1CK. The hard drive died so i have replaced that and reinstalled windows 8.1 on it, so far so good!

I have installed all the drivers needed from the Toshiba website but when installing the wireless driver (Atheros) and rebooting i get a BSOD which says the wsimdx.sys file is causing the issue and that relates to the wireless driver. I have tried using different versions of the driver all of which do the same thing. I have tried the latest driver from the atheros website.


This is getting very frustrating now so if anyone has any ideas i'd like to hear them!

Just for sh**ts and giggles have you tried installing the Windows 8.1 Realtek LAN Adapter Drivers? Is there a sticker on the bottom of the laptop indicating that is indeed an Atheros adapter? If you are absolutely sure it is an Atheros adapter then this truely is a frustrating situation and I will think more about a resolution for you. Let me know.
