You are going to need to provide more information. Can you recreate the conditions that cause the blue screen consistantly (does it always happen when you do ...)?

Did you recently add hardware or install an updated driver? What software was recently installed (right before you start experiancing the issue)?

It would seem you have a driver issue or possibly a hardware issue (stating the obvious). You can start troubleshooting this by by downloading a debug program such as "bluescreenview" by Nirsoft. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html Or "whocrashed" by Resplendence. http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed

These will help you to identify the offending driver or memory location.

You may find "whocrashed" to be easier to use and more informative.

Go to the Start - type "Device Manager" - Click settings to switch that search set - click device manager to open it.

Find the hardware category then device that matches the driver you installed. Right click on the device and select uninstall.

On the uninstall page check the box that says "Delete the driver software for this device" to prevent the same driver being reinstalled automatically.

Go back to device manager and right click your computer and select Scan for Hardware Changes. If I finds a driver accept it (it should be a windows default driver). If it doesn't find a driver windows will attempt to find a driver from Windows Update. You can also try to find the driver from the hardware vendor.

NOTE: if this is your network card driver make sure you get an updated driver from the hardware or motherboard or PC manufacturer first.
