So i'm running a 64bit WIndows 7 system on a laptop (see sig for specs). I've had it for about 4-5 months, and when I got it I immediately did a fresh install. After that I've started getting a spontaneous BSOD error, mentioned in the thread title. I assume it has something to do with the drivers.

Anyhow, it stopped for some time and now it's back. I get it almost daily now. On top of that, I have other issues: boot time has slowed down, my wireless connection keeps dropping for some reason.

I'd do a fresh install, but if the BSOD is caused by drivers, I might get it again. Any ideas?

Start with memtest86+ and burn a bootable cd of it (may need to use another PC if your laptop crashes mid-burning) and then run it on your laptop. IRQL error is almost always related to memory problem.

On Hack-A-Day forum about recent dumping of a ROM chip used in Commodore 1520 plotter and the matter of copyright law:

Ran it, found no erros during the scan, then the laptop just shut off. Was it supposed to be like that?

While it's usually the RAM that causes this a bad PSU will also cause these. It would seem since your machine shut off by itself you should look into the power.

Boot to safemode with command prompt thru F8, then run this command on the dos shell;

chkdsk /x /f /r c:

then reboot, it should run a chkdsk during startup.

But it's a laptop...

Bad battery? Bad rectifier? That's the thing you plug into the wall. Bad Vregs on the board. any of this can cause your issues. With a laptop troubleshooting this stuff will be tough. Hopefully it's something else.

My IRQL experiences in the past have been RAM & HDD related.

Have you tried running WhoCrashed or something similar to see if it was a software issue?
If not, try that, and if that reveals nothing, result to swapping out RAM, if you can.

On Sat 2012.02.25 16:39:22 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\022512-33727-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7CC40)
Bugcheck code: 0xA (0x0, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF800031F1488)
Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: netw5s64.sys (Intel® Wireless WiFi Link Driver, Intel Corporation).
Google query: netw5s64.sys Intel Corporation IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If it's the wireless card, that also explains my connectivity losses.

Pull your wireless card and see if you get anymore BSODs.

Other than that, look into a memtest.
