    Winodws 8.1 BSOD Boot error

    I was working on my laptop on Tuesday and all of a sudden it blue screened with the following error:

    system thread exception not handled athwbx.sys

    I have tried to uninstall the graphics card as a lot of searches mentioned that this was a problem. I can boot the laptop to safe but cant do much else than that. I have also tried system restore but that fails as well.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how I might fix it?

    Athwbx.sys is a Driver for Qualcomm Atheros CB42/CB43/MB42/MB43 Network Adapter. It has nothing to do with the graphic card.

Winodws 8 Pre-Order
Is anyone else a little surprised that no one has Windows 8 available for pre-order yet? Since MS is still more interested in physical media as opposed to downloadable, you'd think they'd want as many people getting their hands on it as soon as possible. I'd figure Amazon, NewEgg and other...
