I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First of all, try to format your posts so they can be more readable. Trying to read that post made my eyes bleed.
Personally I play WOW (with BC) on my vista machine with 0 problems. have you tried running the game in compatability mode as XPSP2?

Here is an article explaining how to do so.

In short, all you have to do is go into the shortcut properties

I have alltel as my high speed internet and PS3. I'm going though a cradle pointe router. I would like to know what I can do to make my speed faster. I lag really bad and get kicked out of the game alot too. Would a gaming router be any better?

A:online gaming and PS3

I don't know if ports are required for the games you are playing, (which may increase the speed), but a gaming router might help.
However, some of them (that I've heard of) are a bit costly, though.

I currently run WinMe & I have been told (and can see the proof) that it is a resource hog & horrible for online gaming.
I am sure everyone has their preference for which OS is best overall... but is there one that is best for online gaming? I was THINKING of upgrading to WinXP but I am not sure if its any better than WinME? Anyone have any advice?


A:Best OS for online gaming?

Definately dump WinME.

Personally, in terms of MS operating systems, Win2k Pro is the most stable (in my experience). Some people don't like it for gaming (you'll have problems running older games) but i've never had really any problems with it.

WinXP is also a viable choice, just as well as Win2k Pro, but XP is designed more for home use. Just be sure to shell out a few more bucks for WinXP Pro, not WinXP home edition.

Of course, Win98 SE is the most compatible OS. Though it's not without it's bugs. For reliability and performance, go with Win2k Pro or WinXP Pro.

Hey, I've been struggling trying to find out what I should use to increase my WiFi connection so I can play games like TF2 and Garry's Mod. I know, WiFi is terrible for online gaming, but I don't have too much other choices. I can't move my router and I'm using a desktop, not a laptop, so I cannot simply move my computer (I also can't move it due to the lack of space in my house).

Anyways, I was wondering whether I should get a wireless repeater or a wireless adapter. I've somewhat singled it down to two different products (one a repeater and one an adapter) and just wanted to know if they were any good or if someone could suggest one for me.

A:Online gaming via Wi-Fi

Why don't you try powerline adapters? Their bandwidth throughput is about the same as Wireless G, but they're definitely better with regards to your ping because you get far fewer dropped packets which means lag would be drastically reduced. Check out these. And click here to learn more about the technology.

I have a Dell Studio XPS running Windows 7 wirelessly connected to a linksys WRT160N Wireless-N Router connected to a Motorola SBV5120 Modem. My ISP is optimum online. When I play online games, I lag, so I tested my speed at Speedtest says I've got 0.91 Mb/s down and 0.97 Mb/s up, which seems awfully low. I was wondering if someone could help me figure out where the problem is. Thank you in advance. Tell me if you need more info.

A:Online Gaming Lag

depends on your internet plan speed wise.

but a few things can be the fault. 1) the wireless connection. Sometimes things can interfere with the signals hence the problem with speed, or the wireless router itself could be the cause. One thing I will suggest is to plug in the computer directly into the modem and see if you can get better speeds than that.

2) the modem, it's possible it's not working right and may need to be replaced *(unlikely but i have seen it happen as i work for a cable internet company)

3) the most common problem, the internet service provider company oversold the internet service and have too many users online at the same time. One way to check is to get them to do a speed test to make sure it's on their end and not yours.

Ok, Me and two friends have been trying to get an older game to work online for a while now. We can get it to work when Im at their house and we use their network. When we try online it never finds the host. We have the same internet service and router. I have tried to foward the ports and no luck. The ports for the game are 2300 - 2400. I have a Speedstream 5200 DSL router. If anybody can help me I would really appreciate it. Also, My webserver won't work now since I got DSL. I have fowarded port 80, and no luck there either.... Worked fine when I had dialup. Please help me out. I would really appreciate it.

A:Just Online Gaming

You can't uninstall them if they aren't listed.

They may not actually be installed yet. What you may have are just "setup shortcuts" for MS Works & MS Office, and they may only be trial versions which are often supplied with laptops. If you haven't actually boght or installed Office, it will only be a trial version because it isn't built-in to any version of Windows.

Right Ive Online router gaming through a had enough of spending hours a night searching through forums and tech troubleshooting to solve this very apparent but also ridiculous Online gaming through a router problem with online gaming Im looking for the final solution to this problem which seems to have plagued so so many people With todays broadband technology and fast computers you would think online gaming Online gaming through a router would not only be flawless but also easy and stress free to setup No no I find my first experience turning me into a raving lunatic aimlessly searching the wise for unanswered questions to a stupidly simple problem It all started when my mate and I wanted to finally get some games of age of empires online on the go simple enough right old as hell game new mb broadband for us both sorted right wrong again I tried everything from opening up the nessesary ports to closing down both my routers broadband and windows still no go having the same problem as everyone else hosted games are invisible and joining is unsuccessful Eventually the forums came through for me and we both installed hamachi and finally after more hair tearing and temper tantrums we finally got our direct TCP IP game going but because the gods hate online gamers so much apparently we very rarely get a good connection via hamachi and either our connection is relayed or is jus pants so more often or not the ping is so high our games disconnect st question on this is is there a way to speed up our connection thru hamachi or are we going to be stuck with relayed speeds and high pings despite having ridiculously fast bb We tried several times to play rome total war aswell and even managed to get ourselves onto the total war community but as we suspected we can join some games only to be booted for reasons unknown or my friend cannot see the hosted game And yes all relevant ports have been opened for these games and firewalls are down Now our patience has withering into nothing I have no idea how the population of Belgium have managed to play wow online and for this problem not to have risen and caused router makers to fix this But If my saviour is out there somewhere then let them be signed up to tech support guy com and hope for a miracle any help will be met with open arms and most likely a sloppy kiss for the miracle worker Other questions i have regarding the issue are as follows Can i assign just hamachi to the DMZ Will this likely solve the slow relay problem I know that the whole IP problem is that the router sends a different one to the computers which is why we cant jus direct connect specially in the case of aoe because the game detects the routers IP not my pcs soooo is there a way to overide this or assign an IP so that we can direct connect TCP IP by the ways we are not on a LAN will setting my routers IP status from static to open do anything in regards to this problem I have a BT home Hub by the ways And have turned off the internal firewall in that too but to no avail Please help me obi-wan Kenobi your my only hope nbsp

Usually it lists

Hi there,
Basically over the past week I have been getting really bad lag spikes when gaming online but when I do a speed test my results are what they should be. I get fairly fast internet (105Mbps with around 16 ping and 6Mbps upload) so I don't understand where the problem is. I have contacted my broadband provider who found a problem on the line but when it was fixed nothing had changed.
I use a Netgear Wireless USB adapter as getting a Ethernet cable from the router to my PC isn't the easiest of tasks even though my room sits above where the router is. I've tried turning my router off and on, I've tried factory resetting it as well as unplugging and plugging in the USB adapter and speaking with my provider.
I am out of ideas so any help would be appreciated!

Hi Bluestrata43, welcome!

Sounds like AOL is blocking everything. I don't use it so I don't know how to tell you to fix it. Maybe someone here uses it - but unlikely.

Have you looked at AOL documentation on parental restrictions? What if you raise the "restrictions" to see if this has something to do with your problem?

(my first instinct was to tell you to uninstall AOL - but that wouldn't be very helpful! ;))

My friends and I have been playing Age of the Empires 2 online by using Hamachi. We all have the same version of both the game and Hamachi. All are running Windows XP. We will set up a multilayer LAN game, and everyone will be able to see the game by inserting the host's Hamachi IP into the Ages IP bar. About Half of the people attempting to join will get into the game no problem, the other half, after seeing the game, and trying to join will be "unable to connect". All firewalls have been checked. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

A:Age of the Empires II, Online Gaming

I also have problem with AOE II, but the problem is not being able to see the game. If you can see the game you are on the right track, obviously some computer/IP interference.

Hey, I have a computer thats 4-5 years old, It has a 64 mb vid card and 512 mb ram with a pentium 4 processor 1700 mhz processor.

Now im starting to play a game (WoW) and its an online massive multiplayer game, my performance is good but now that im doing special "quests" with like 40 other people cramped almost into a single spot it lags me up.

When I start killing stuff with the 40 other ppl cramped up in a spot, I lock up bad and can barely control what Im doing, so im basically just standing there waiting till its over. What can I change/add to my PC to fix this problem and have minimal to no lock ups?

If you are using a dongle can I ask what company?

and does it only Disconnect from the internet when you play these games or when you browse the internet aswell? if its just the game I dont know what you can do tbh, it may just be your IP, because my computer messes up and I use one, but I play steam games but I would check that your dongle is working on sombody elses or your own laptop and try and see if its your computer or the dongle good luck

I race Nascar 2003 over the internet in a league. I've been having a problem with an error appearing and kicking me out of the game in the middle of the race. The error reads, "100054 error has been detected". I am using a cable modem and racing through Sierra Game Servers. The game kicks me out to the server and then I can log back in again without rebooting or starting the game. We have not had problems disconnecting from other game servers. Can you advise.

you need to post this on a NASCAR 2003 forum, they will most likely know what the error is, if not, contact Sierra customer support.

We have a small lan on a DSL line at my residence. It works fine we have a 4 computer lan. We have a 1 port linksys router that goes into 5 port 10/100MBs switch. Everything seems good and we can play most online games together.

The problem is we all like to play starcraft maybe some of you can relate . Anyways, we log on to and we can join the same channel but when we try to enter into the same online game it wont allow us to. We can play on the lan fine but not togeter online. I imagine it has something to do with the router but i cant figure out what, or even for sure if that is the problem. We also run into run into problems trying to send some data out using programs like IRC or when we tried to setup a webcam.

Any help/information would be appreciated.

A:Online Gaming problems

It's because to the game server it looks like 4 sessions coming from one IP address and one port. I think you are pretty much out of luck unless you get static IP addresses for your LAN from your ISP

It could just be the iwnet servers, how is the lag on other games?
I play cod online (PC) a lot and the lag on some games is horrific but on others it is awesome, so could just b that.

Cod is lacking dedicated servers this adds a LOT of lag, as it relies on at least one person in each game having a very reasonable connection, bad way of doing but its the way to make loads of money. as they don't have to pay for servers running all the time.

Hello, I am currently running my internet using the work connection I have in my home. I want to be able to play online shooters, CounterStrike, Deus Ex..... Now it doesn't show any servers since I have this work connection...I downloaded GameSpy about 30 mins ago and as it was loading up, it said something about a firewall was stopping me from using GameSpy properly.

Am I looking in the right place? And if so, I went to inbound and outbound rules nd that looked like maybe it might have something to do with it.

Thank you very much in advance for any information!

A:Connection Issue regarding gaming online

Did you ever used Windows Firewall with Advanced Security ( your screenshot ) to configure anything? If you haven't touched it before then the problem is not there. Please explain what 'work connection' is. What 'work connection' means to me is a VPN connection that puts you inside a company's network so you can access MS Exchange servers, Sharepoint servers, as if you were in the office.

When trying to play on the internet, the game just freezes at the splash screen and the computer locks up - no ctrl-alt-del, no end program in task manager, nothing works. I had to do a hard shut-down twice today. This also happened last night when they went to Game (Not playing Half-Life, just games there). My stats are as follows:

Also: when the splash screen appears, the screen resolution seems lower. I have mine set to 800x600 - this seems even lower even though I do not have the option for a lower setting.

I am having several online gaming problems. At first I thought they were all related to ZoneAlarm Pro that I installed, but the problems have been occuring whether it's installed or not.

First is with any kind of online shooter games, specifically Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, Battlefield 1942, and Counter-Strike. They are wonderfully playable, and at decently low pings no less. But every minute or so, my connection gets interrupted for about 10 seconds. This happens consistantly, and proves to be quite annoying.

The other problem is with Warcraft III and Starcraft, I am unable to connect to

I have tried contacting many other places to find answers to my problems, but none have done me any good.

I connect to the internet through an 802.11b wireless connection to a netgear router. That is then connected to a DSL line.

If anyone has any suggestions, I know my question is kind of vague. But I'm desperate here.

A:myriad of online gaming problems

Does your connection ever drop when you're not playing games?

Did you have the games installed before you got the router, or the DSL? If so, try reinstalling the games.

So, me and my boyfriend are moving in together soon and we both play PC games online quite extensively. I am quite proficient at networking but I like to get a second opinion on things so here's my question:
As we will be running two computers off of the same router and we will at some point want to be playing in the same server as each other, can you think of any problems and solutions that we may need to bear in mind? The only thing I can think of is that some games that use Punkbuster may encounter a problem but this should be fixable with a bit of fiddling. Is there anything else thats more generic that could be a problem?

Thanks in advance

A:2 computers, same network, online gaming

Well, the problem with playing on the same server from one ISP connection is many games don't allow a single IP address to have multiple connections. I'm not a gamer, so I can't give specifics, but we see people complaining about this all the time here.

It happens from time to time but it's really annoying. I don't wanna mess with system settings but god I have to disable something or rollback to Windows 8.1 . My system is brand new and I left it alone the first 2 days so it could update and don't bother me but still it happens.

So that's it guys. What would you recommend me to disable? I have noted that "Content delivery optimization" use a lot of bandwidth while on fullscreen. If I remember well that's the live tiles feed update for start menu.

A:Windows using network while gaming online

For starters turn off sharing Windows Updates, it should not be sharing when PC is active, but just to be sure.

Windows Update - Choose how you Download in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Another possibility, turn off auto-updating apps, but you will have to update them manually then.

Do I have to shut domn zonealarm to play iwin games? won't load unless I do. This of course leaves me naked on the net, I can not find a "safe zone" option in the zone program. thx

A:online gaming with zone alarm

I went into " Program Control " in Zone Alarm to " allow " my games access to the net.

This let me play multiplayer games.
I wanted the best performance out of my games, so disabled all background applications ( except Explorer and Systray ) .
When I am done gaming, I just startup Zone Alarm again.

It may leave me vunerable while I play, but I have had no problems yet.

Im playing counter strike online. If i play a public game everything is fine but if i play gun game everyone has a latency of less than 50 while mine is over 2 or 300. Eventually i get disconnected for the high lartency. What is it an how do i reduce it?

A:online gaming high latency?

Stop all programs that are using the Internet on both your computer and your network. If this does not help, you need to find a server closer to home or call your ISP.

Thanks for creating your own Thread.

Do you have a Static IP setup for your PS3?
Setting a static IP address on the Playstation 3 -

You will need to do port-forwarding of your games as well.
Ports listed by application. -

Some heavy gamers do enable DMZ from the router so there's no need do open up ports, but it is also not safe.

I tried Windows 10 and found that Guild Wars 2 had such bad lag that it was unplayable. I had a ping of 1360 as one point when it had been in the 60-80 range previously. Internet web pages took painfully long to load. I have an excellent ISP and have never had complaints about internet access before. In searching forums I read that Window 10 has issues with data packet loss, excessive lag, etc. I went back to Windows 7 and this fixed the lag issue with Guild Wars 2 and Web Pages load instantly again, so I know Windows 10 was causing the problem.

How could Microsoft screw this up?

Does anyone know if this has been fixed and if Windows 10 is safe for online gaming yet?

A:Windows 10 causing lag with online gaming

I game online all the time with Windows 10 and haven't experienced those issues. Did you try reinstalling your ethernet or wifi drivers after you upgraded to 10? Any time I upgrade an OS, I tend to reinstall my networking drivers, GPU drivers and sound drivers, because they can occasionally become corrupted during the upgrade install.

I have not been able to connect for any online games in STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT. I find a server, it appears to connects and goes all the way to the map and then says "CONNECTION TO HOST LOST" with "WAITING FOR PLAYERS" flashing in the background.

I opened ports, diabled firewalls, antivirus nothing seems to work.

I can connect for other online games but this one uses GAMESPY. Is GAMESPY the reason or am I doing something wrong?

Has anybody seen this before and if your have please help a brother out!!!

A:Online gaming connection problem

We don't assist in circumventing the network policies of the school. You would want to check with the university that the ports for those games are beingi blocked. Most universities that I know of do block gaming traffic to prevent overutilization.

A:Upgrade vid-card for online gaming

With your setup, you could upgrade to a Radeon 7500 for a mere 84$ ( TechSpot PriceGrabber ).

With that you'll be all set to improve your performance on CS & the likes.

For newer games, that card will still be pretty good but you'll need to upgrade your ram to 256mb to really be comfortable.

I recently moved to Germany and need to know what the requirements are that an internet connection must fulfill so that it is right for playing games like Black Ops 2 online?

What are the options?

What service providers are good and what is affordable?

What speed should the connection be?

Should the monthly internet be unlimited?


A:Internet for Online Gaming in Germany?

First, as far as I know all German providers offer only unlimited plans. T-Home (Deutsche Telekom, German Telecom, owners of worldwide T-mobile) was planning a system where there would be a 75GB monthly limit and thereafter slower connection but luckily the politicians blocked the plans.

The German plans quite often include TV, fixed phone line and DSL or VDSL. As an example, we have T-Home VDSL from Deutsche Telekom, 50 Mbps in 10 Mbps out for Internet and the same for IPTV plus fixed phone with unlimited calls to fixed phones and T-mobile mobile phones for about €60 a month, including about 150 SD and 50 HD TV channels. Internet, DSL, VDSL: Surfen, Telefonieren bis zu 50 MBits | Telekom

I would first check which cable TV provider you are connected to. If the house you are living gets the cable from Kabel Deutschland, they offer for instance a 100 Mbps line for €20 a month for the first year, €40 from the second year. Kabel Deutschland Startseite: Kabelfernsehen, Internet und Telefon

"Eins & Eins", 1&1 has an excellent price / quality ratio in for instance their 50/10 Mbps packet including fixed phoneline with free calls to German fixed numbers, 1&1 Home Server router with 100GB network storage, up to 4 SIM cards for mobile phones with free mobile surfing, free calls to German fixed numbers and free calls to 1&1 mobiles. Price €30 a month. DSL von 1&1 - Angebote und Tarife f?r Ihren DSL Anschluss

1&1 also offers a Quick Start Service (Sofort-Start), in most cases if you order in the morning you are surfing the same evening.

Hello Tenforums:

The BSOD happened during a few hour gaming session in GTA Online. The BSOD showed "KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE" and then hung at 100% before I forced the machine to shut down after a lengthy wait. The only two leads are that I have are that there is (probably was by now) a windows 10 pro insider preview update pending to install during inactive hours. (Maybe it tried to initiate the install while in-game which went wrong?) The other thing is that the drivers for my Nvidia GTX 760 just updated. As of late, there have been a lot problems with their drivers, but I haven't been affected by any issues so far.

A:Inconsistent Landlord's Wifi - Online Gaming

Judging from the current information, I would suspect a speed issue.

I would suggest contacting them to find out if the signals to the modem are erratic at the times you have had issues. Also you would want to see if they can tell there were any utilization issues.

I would also suggest doing a speed test when it's fine (min 3 of them) and when it goes wonky (again 3 tests min)

A:Online gaming cuts out my internet connection

Do you know what your signal strength there is? If not, check with your ISP and have them take a reading. Low signal strength can cut your bandwidth drastically... meaning your online game will eventually cause the modem to choke and have to reset itself. Often the cable company has to come replace a section of bad cable(degraded from lightning strikes, kinks, chafing, etc) that is gimping your connection... or it may be as simple as swapping in a bandwidth amplifier from radio shack on the coax line.

If your signal strength is strong, your cable modem may be at the end of its life. If you have a friend with a cable modem handy, you could borrow it and plug it up to see how it runs... but before testing you have to call your ISP tech desk and tell them the MAC address and, I believe, the serial number of the modem(usually on the back of the cable modem near the connectors).

As a side note, different cable modems have different signal strength requirements to maintain a decent connection. Another modem may work even if your signal strength is a little weak for your current modem. So I'd have the signal strength checked either way.

I don't know about RCA, but Motorola cable modems have pretty good signal strength requirements.

Hope that helps.

I got a problem here about playing online when I playing on my pc suddenly it shutdown by itself I don't know whats the problem, it happened after I successfully download the game supported apps and trying to play the game a second later my pc was suddenly shutting down by itself but never when I don't play the game, I think there is something wrong with the game or the app I had downloaded please help me to sort this one out any comment will be appreciated thank you and FYI below is my pc spec and the game itself :

Toshiba notebook Windows Vista Home Basic 32 Bit SP2
Processor Intel Core Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00 GHz x 2
Game The Lost Titan

maybe thats enough thanks everyone

A:Online Gaming problem (Windows Shutting down by itself)

I was unsuccessful trying to find some system requirements for Lost Titans. All I could find is that it is 3D and optimized for the Chrome Browser. I don't think you have 3D capabilities. You could try running it in Chrome. In my opinion, I don't think your system is capable of playing this game (but I could be wrong).

Just wondering, how much free hard drive space do you have?

I have a Speedstream 4100 DSL modem and when I just surf the internet it is fine. But when I play some online games I can only play for about 30-45 minutes before my DSL modem gets disconnected from the internet.

Okay so I am getting a new laptop. it will have windows 8.1, my friend has windows 7. does it matter? can we still connect in games either online or tcp/ip games. not necessarily mmo but rpg's and such. Thanks!

A:Solved: Operating systems and online gaming

Operating system makes no difference. As long as you have enough memory and a graphics card that can handle your games - preferably one with dedicated memory since a number of games really need it. Besides if you ever decide to get into the mmo games, you'll really need it. My daughter plays WOW and has 6 or 8 gigs of memory and an upper end graphics card with dedicated memory - it even has its own cooling fan built in.

Do any of you fellow parents out there know of good gaming sites for kids? I would love to find one where they can play multiplayer against other kids there age and be able to chat too. My seven year old figured out how to go online through gamespy to play Dirt Track Racing 2 and when I went in to check on him the languge flying around in chat was definately not appropriate.

I had to block Gamespy in my router to keep the little bugger from going back in there, but it will only be a matter of days before he figures out how to get to the router settings or get around the block alltogether. It would be awesome if there was actually a kid friendly online gaming site that wasn't as childish as NickJr. (When I suggested that to him he said "I don't think so dad!"

Hello! This is my first time posting on here..
I've been getting BSOD while Gaming..
I read through the BSOD Post - here is to hoping I got it correct.
Thank you for looking and all your help!

Windows 7 . . .
- x64 Home Premium
- the original installed OS on the system? - Yes
- OEM - What is the age of system (hardware)? 3 years
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) 2 days

Manufacturer: Cyberpower Inc.
Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 245 Processor 2.90Ghz
RAM: 4.00 GB
System: 64-bit Operating System
NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

A:BSOD While Gaming! (Star Trek Online)

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

You have a Wireless N-300 USB Adapter WNA3100. Win7 doesn't like these devices. And, when combined with Vista era drivers (yours date from 2009), it'll spit out a whole lot of BSOD's. Here's my rant about these devices:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

You also have the 2005 version of ASACPI.sys. This is a known cause of BSOD's on Win7 systems. Visit the Asus website and download the latest version for your system. It's the ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver and is found in either the Utilities section or the ATK section of the downloads for your system/motherboard. If you can't locate it, post back and we'll suggest other alternatives.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs
