So I tried posting this on troubleshoot forums for Steam, but unfortunately no one has given me an answer as well as similar posts in Steam forums as well. So.. I thought I should ask the real professionals here!

I tried researching some answers on Google, but only found something about network card/driver issues having to cause the BSOD with Arma 3 Multiplayer. The network card/driver that people seem to have in common towards this problem is "Killer E2200 Network Driver" which also seems to be their main problem to accessing the multiplayer portion of Arma 3 that causes BSODs for them. According to their resolutions, they updated the driver and so it happened to work out for them.

What I have done so far is that I also checked what programs I have activated or on, and one of them seems to click to this issue which is "Qualcomm Atheros Killer Network Manager." In addition, I also checked my device manager page, and under network manager it shows "Killer e2200 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS.6.20)."

So my main question is... is this the issue to my BSOD occurrences? And if so... how do I update those specific network drivers? Thank you! :)

good odds that killer nic card drivers cause bugchecks if you have not updated them. They are not updated via the windows update process. You have to go to your motherboard vendor site and install the updated drivers from them.
