    Laptop Getting BSoD

    Hi, in the last few days I've gotten the same Blue Screen when watching Youtube videos. I've gotten a few bsod's before but never twice in the same week so i figured i should try to get some help.

    Both of these times i was watching a video on Youtube in fullscreen when it freezes for a second and the sound stutters then i get the bsod.

    A few things that could be important:
    -I found a small hole in the power cord for the laptop recently and i covered it up with electrical tape. if the cord gets too bent near where this hole is, my screen darkens as if it were unplugged.
    -When my laptop is restarted it comes up with some error message every time. It says something about not being able to locate some file (think the file address had Appdata in it). If it's important, I could check it and copy it down.

    I'm using Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit on a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop.

    Also i copied two of the recent Bluescreen reports to notepad. Let me know i you need them.

    Your problem is caused by a driver netio.sys.
    Lets hope that if you follow these instructions, try each and test, we can get you up and running
    BSOD with netio.sys or ndis.sys - Fix

    Thanks for the quick reply. Have done steps 1-3 and will see how things are. I don't know of a surefire way to test it other then keep watching videos in fullscreen and see if I get any more bluescreens or not. So unless there's a quick way to test it, I'll let you know in a few days if there are no problems.

    Also noticed one of the updates for my network driver that i found was said to be urgent (from 2008 lol) so hopefully that could be the problem.

    Very good
    If the tutorial did not work, next suggestion would have been network driver. Lets be patient and see what happens.
    If you have zone alarm, as firewall, uninstall and use Windows Firewall.

    As far as I know, I don't have zone alarm. Seems to be working fine now though. Thanks for the help!
