How can I resolve the NETwLv64.sys BSoD error?

Resolving the NETwLv64.sys BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) error involves a series of troubleshooting steps to identify and address the underlying cause. This error is often related to Intel wireless network drivers on Windows systems. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you resolve the issue:

  1. Restart Your Computer: Sometimes, BSoD errors can occur due to temporary glitches. A simple restart might resolve the issue.

  2. Boot into Safe Mode: Boot your computer into Safe Mode to isolate if the BSoD is caused by a third-party application or driver. If the error doesn't occur in Safe Mode, it's likely a driver or software conflict issue.

  3. Update or Roll Back Drivers:

    • Visit the official website of your laptop or motherboard manufacturer.
    • Download the latest Intel wireless network drivers for your specific model.
    • If you recently updated the drivers and the issue started, try rolling back to the previous version.
  4. Uninstall and Reinstall Drivers:

    • Press Win + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand the Network adapters section, right-click on your wireless adapter, and select Uninstall device.
    • After uninstalling, restart your computer.
    • Upon restart, Windows should automatically try to reinstall the drivers. You can also manually install the latest drivers.
  5. Update Windows: Make sure your Windows operating system is up to date with the latest updates. Microsoft often releases updates that address driver compatibility issues.

  6. Check for Hardware Issues:

    • Run hardware diagnostic tools to check for issues with your network adapter or other hardware components.
    • Perform a memory test (like Windows Memory Diagnostic) to ensure your RAM is functioning properly.
  7. Scan for Malware: Run a thorough malware scan using your preferred antivirus software to check for any malicious software that might be causing the issue.

  8. Perform System File Checker (SFC) Scan:

    • Open Command Prompt as an administrator.
    • Type sfc /scannow and press Enter.
    • Let the scan complete, and it will attempt to repair any corrupted system files.
  9. Check Event Viewer:

    • Open the Event Viewer by searching for it in the Start menu.
    • Look for critical or error events around the time of the BSoD. This might provide more information about the cause.
  10. Check for Overheating: Overheating can cause system instability. Ensure your computer is adequately cooled and vents are not blocked.

  11. Reset Windows: If none of the above steps work, you might consider resetting Windows to its default settings. This can help resolve issues caused by corrupted system files.
