    BSOD while watching online video - Windows 7 x86

    Hi all
    Recently aquired a secondhand laptop and have experienced a couple of crashes after watching online video for about 30 mins.

    Windows 7 home premium x86
    Pre installed OS.
    Restored to factory state a few days ago and updated.
    Age of system not known but doesn't appear to have had much use.

    Dell Inspiron 1090
    CPU Intel Atom n550

    Please let me know if you need any more info.

    Thanks for your help

    Performance Monitor times out and doesn't produce report.

    Both of the attached DMP files are of the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1) bug check.

    This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

    A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

    Thanks for your help.

    Checked the OEM for latest version and it appears to be the version that I already have so I reinstalled just in case.

    Checked Broadcom and they have a more recent version but it will not install so I guess that the OEM version has been modified.

    Installed all other updated drivers that were available at the OEM site while I was there.

    I'll try watching a few videos and see if the problem occurs again and let you know how I get on.
