<BSOD Error all of a sudden-- New Lenovo Laptop Z580>

I have taken a new lenovo laptop two months back. All of a sudden I got blue screen error and it automatically rebooted. Please help me with this. I am attaching all the required files here. Thanks a lot for your help.

The memory dump blames RTL8192cu.sys - a driver component of your wireless USB networking device.
If I may ask, why are you using a wireless USB network device on a system that's equipped with a perfectly good wifi adapter already?
Win7 doesn't like these devices. Here's my rant on this subject:
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.
Only 80 updates since SP1 - most systems have 130 to 140 updates. Please visit Windows Update and get all available updates.

More to follow after dinner.......

D: drive only has 287 mB free (out of 25 gB) - it should have 3 or 4 gB free. Please free up the extra space.

Bluetooth is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Hi usasma,
Thanks a lot for helping me with the solution. I have freed up space in the hard disk. I have updated the drivers for wireless adapter. The reason for using the wireless adapter is that the default adapter that came with the new laptop is having some issue. I called Lenovo people they told me that one complete batch of Z580 laptops have got a weak wifi card on it. It frequently disconnects and irritates while working.

Thanks a lot for your time and help once again.

If this is a warranty issue, I'd suggest calling the reseller or Lenovo and asking what they plan to do to help you out?
Similar wifi cards sell for $20 to $40 (US) on the internet - it seems like a small investment on their part in order to make you satisfied. Another question to ask is "Who should pay for the wireless USB adapter that I had to buy in order to use this laptop?"

Hi John,
I have called Lenovo people. They said that I have to send the laptop back to them. Since I am a graduate student and I am in the middle of my course, I cannot do that. I am planning to send it in December after my exams are over. They said you should only pay one way shipping charges. I have bought the wifi adapter on ebay so that I can do my work with out disconnecting from internet frequently. I don't know what can I do other than this.

Thanks a lot.

Several options come to mind (but not knowing your situation - you'll have to choose what's best for you).

1 - purchase a new wifi card and install it in the laptop yourself
2 - purchase a new wifi card and have someone else install it for you
3 - continue to use the USB adapter (with updated drivers) and bear with the issues until December
4 - connect to the internet with a wire and disable the wifi stuff
5 - try other wifi adapters
6 - on some laptops there are PCI/PCIe card slots - get a wifi card for that slot
7 - borrow a computer from someone so you can send yours sooner
8 - rent a computer from a rental center while you send yours off to be repaired

These may not be ideal choices for you - but they're all that I can think of if Lenovo won't give you a replacement laptop to use while they're fixing yours
