    Windows 8.1 64-bit crashes constantly BSOD problem


    KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE, it happens while i try to play games on Steam and also while watching Youtube videos. Really, it happens a lot while i just do everyday task. I don't know what the problem is but I have the dump files. I did RAM test and I downloaded all drivers; everything is up to date.

    Thanks Everyone!!

    Hi there fatpanda16 and welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I have analyzed your DUMP files and all the DUMP files point towards a driver named :- "MRVW24C.sys" which is "Linksys, NetGear, DLink or Marvell Wireless USB Network Adapter." On further analyzing your dump files, the timestamp of the driver is 2007 which is extremely old and is probably causing the BSOD's because it is incompatible with Windows 8.1. The given driver can be updated from the following link :-

    http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support

    Surely, you must be playing Steam games when you were online or in other words using the Internet like watching the Youtube as well. Please update this driver ASAP and let me know in case the issue is still not resolved and I will be glad to help you out. ^_^

    The last released driver for the wireless adapter is dated: 12/04/2007. Should I replace my wireless adapter with one that is supported by Windows 8.1? Or, is there another way of fixing the problem without having to replace my wireless adapter?

    Could you please re run the SF Diagnostic Tools and let it complete the diagnostic? Because the Archive you have attached does not have anything through which I could see what is the brand / make of the Wireless adapter.

    Attach the latest Archive file generated by the SF diagnostic tool in your next post.

    I changed wireless adapters and it seemed to have solved the problem. Thanks a lot!!!!! It was the wireless adapter that I had previously.
