The Intel drivers for my Ethernet card are now further updated, using the "generic" PROXP.exe from the Intel website. Don't feel or see a difference - it seems to be working well, same as before. The specific file e1e5132.sys is now version 184.108.40.206 from 2008 -- it used to be version 220.127.116.11 from 2007.
Removed and re-installed Avast Home Free, re-updated it and ran a thorough boot-time scan (no infections). The file is now version 4.8.1356.0, last modified Sept 15, 2009.
Haven't been able to find any newer drivers for the Conexant fax modem beyond its "new" 2007 drivers. Any ideas?
Now, let's see if I get the BSOD over the next week or so.

Here is the firmware update available for this product. It is worth a try:

Mr. Kumar: Thanks for your suggestion. Please see my existing post at
Before I "flash" irreversible firmware into my printer, with the risk that the "flash" will go bad and kill the printer in the middle of a busy season, I shall wait for other people to confirm that this firmware update works.
In any case, HP's too-brief explanation for the firmware (at your link) has nothing to do with my BSOD printing problem.
SInce you are an HP employee -- although I appreciate you are a volunteer -- could you send a message to the tech team for this OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless A909g AIO to check my thread here and supply some focused help?
Please let me know.

As a standard process the firmware updates are excessively tested in various platforms before publishing on the web for users. I have not heard any issues with firmware update crashing. I believe HP support will take extra care if such incident happens. Based on your request I will however forward this thread to another expert.

Please advise your expert that I can send a number of minidump files and an msinfo32 file. See Mr. Griffith's posts above in this thread.
My msinfo32 file lists the OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless A909g as a "Problem Device".

Mr. Kumar: The firmware update does not work anyway. Please go to
and see the last comment. Thanks,

I will verify that by doing some test on the unit that I have. I'll keep you posted.

Mr. Kumar: That will be interesting, but it does not seem relevant to the BSOD crashing problem. Please ask your expert whether I may send him copies of my minidump and msinfo32.nfo files. How may I send them to him?

Unfortunately I have only base model for which firmware update is not available. I will however try to co ordinate with some on who's got premier or wireless model. Although the firmware is not designed for BSOD issue the reason why I'm recommending it is because if there is a glitch in the firmware of your product it can be corrected by running an update. It is like repairing a corrupted program. It is possible that BSOD may be caused due to glitch in firmware however i don't have any evidence to substatiate that.

I don't know why anyone would think that I would or can mark a thread solved, but I did not.
