Blue screen of death while playing games

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I am frequently experiencing a Blue Screen Of Death while playing games. A
blue screen comes up, with no message on it and I must restart my computer in
order to use it again. The games this occurs in are The Sims 2, Brothers in
Arms, Swat 4, Day of Defeat, Half Life 2 and FarCry. It's really, really
grating my nerves because I have tried everything! Please help! Thanks. This
is what the event logs give me:

    Hi TalonWolf,

    To determine what driver is causing the problem I need you to enable driver
    1) Windows Key + R
    2) Type in 'verifier' and hit enter
    3) Make sure 'Create Standard Setting' is selected and hit next
    4) Click on 'Select all drivers installed on this computer' and hit Finish
    5) Reboot

    There is a possibility that your computer will crash on reboot. If this
    occurs hit F8 when rebooting just before the windows logo screen and select
    the safe mode boot option. Follow the same steps above but on step 4 choose
    'Select driver names from a list'; hit next; check the box next to any
    driver where the provider is not Microsoft; hit Finish; reboot.

    This will slow the performance of you computer a little while enabled but
    will hopefully catch the driver causing corruption. Next time you crash
    the blue screen will hopefully say something like
    "DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION". If this occurs please send the
    corresponding minidump (by default it is at c:\windows\Minidump ) my way.
    If you have any questions or I didn't explain something well enough don't
    hesitate to e-mail me (remove "online") back. Good Luck,
