Driver conflicting with my game?

I've recently been playing the game Vindictus, and randomly started to blue screen after a few minutes or a few hours of playing. My friend said he had a similar problem when he tried playing ArmA. He told me to use Driver Verifier to see if it was a driver issue, and sure enough right when I launched the game with Verifier running I blue screened. I don't know what to do from here or if it is a completely different problem. But recently, after a system restore only a few hours before the blue screen, Vindictus only crashes instead of blue screens.

I was wondering, how do I pin point what driver it is? And how do I fix it?

  1. There was only one memory dump, not sure why cause it crashed. I don't know why I said it was my problem, it's my friends. But anyway, he sent me his dump file. I opened it and it says,

    PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
    Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
    MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc). If a kernel debugger is
    available get the stack trace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000000000000099, A PTE or PFN is corrupt
    Arg2: 000000000003c889, page frame number
    Arg3: 0000000000000002, current page state
