Y550 multiple reboots per day...any suggestions

[ Edited ]

is where you can find the most recent mini-dump files.

 

Quick recap:

 

--Laptop has been rebooting several times a day recently. I checked for updated drivers for video card (are none); LAN (are none); wireless card (are none - this is what solved my last bsod/reboot issue); multi-card reader (updated - figured it couldn't hurt). Reboots still happening

 

--Booted to Memtest and ran successfully without finding any RAM issues; Reboots still happening.

 

--Thought it might be NAV (norton antivirus), so I disabled the software on several occasions; Reboots still happening.

 

--Uninstalled NAV (per Norton recommendations); Manually rebooted; Re-installed NAV; Reboots still happening.

 

--Thought it might be an update that I got for Tom-Tom software within the last couple of weeks, so I uninstalled all Tom-tom software and rebooted; reboots still happening.

 

Any thoughts/research into this would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks.

the crash dumps blame netw5s64.sys which is intel® wireless wifi link adapter.
use intel driver update utility to find the updates for you:

That seems to have taken care of it, and I have bookmarked the url for future "usage" Smiley Happy

 

Again, thanks.
