I've been getting this BSOD repeatedly over the past 9 months or so, in spells. They seem to happen at random during each "spell".

Here are my PC specs:
Processor - i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz
GPU - GTX 1080 8GB
RAM - 16GB DDR4 2133MHz
Motherboard - Alienware 01NYPT

To fix it, I've tried...
  • Uninstalling/reinstalling drivers/chipsets
  • Updating drivers/chipsets
  • Updating Windows
The closest I've gotten to fixing it is uninstalling/reinstalling the driver, but I got another BSOD today.

Here is a link to the minidump, ran through WinDbg: https://pastebin.com/Ppsq9sJD

I'm getting desperate at this point, so any help would be appreciated.

Qcamain10x64.sys = Qualcomm Atheros Extensible Wireless LAN device driver - Dell site (linked below) has the latest KIller internet drivers now so no point giving you a direct link to killer themselves.

that is a fairly new PC, did you go here and pick Detect drivers? = https://www.dell.com/support/home/au/en/audhs1/product-support/product/alienware-aurora-r5-desktop/drivers

Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD

that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD
copy that file to documents
upload the copy from documents to a file sharing web site, and share the link here and I will get someone to convert file into a format I can read

I posted a link to the link to the minidump, it's in the OP.
As for the driver, I checked the Dell website, and the version on there matches the one I have installed, according to Device Manager.
