    BSOD on wake from sleep, "Your PC ran into a problem"


    Hi guys,

    I'm really hoping one of you geniuses can help me as I purchased this laptop (ASUS N550JV) less tan 30 days ago and I've had about 5 BSOD's, all occurring on wake up from sleep. Finals are coming up and I'd really appreciate any help you guys can offer. Files attached below. Thanks!

    All BSOD's were caused by Qualcomm Atheros Extensible Wireless LAN device driver: athwbx.sys & athw8x.sys. Go to ASUS site and download the latest version then update it.

    Maybe that would explain why I'm always having to manually reconnect my wifi at wake up? I'm downloading/installing the Atheros drivers now. I'll let you know if that does it. Thanks

    Okay. I updated the Atheros drivers and have gone through 3 sleep/wake cycles with no problems... so far so good. Thank you so much!
