Hi,
Recently my laptop started to face Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) regularly whenever I was playing some game on WiFi, I can game normally if I disable the drivers from Device Manager and use Mobile USB tethering (haven't tried Ethernet but I guess it should work just fine).
What happens exactly?
The game get's stuck and remains stuck forever or a BSOD appears.

BSOD errors: (either of them appears)
1. DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION
2. BUGCODE NDIS DRIVER

Things I've tried:
1. Clean install of Windows through recovery
2. Updating and rolling back WiFi adapter drivers
3. Updating BIOS to latest version
4. CHDSK

I don't know what else to do now, Laptop's warranty is no longer there (I forgot to extend it but I've contacted Acer, let's see what they say).

Something I noticed in Event Viewer:

Anyone with any idea? I think it could be my WiFi adapter dying out, my friend also faced the same problem on his laptop earlier and they replaced his adapter.

Windows recovery doesn't do a clean install, you're best creating a bootable installer for your OS using Windows Media Creation Tools and then proceeding. You can avoid that by performing a repair install. Can you pass on the make and model of your laptop (as well as the SKU) and perhaps the name of the wireless adapter onboard your laptop(courtesy of Device Manager).
