  1. Not sure what this is, but I have XP and once in a while my computer is restarting itself. Upon reboot, Windows tells me there is a driver error. Maybe someone can confirm it is a driver issue and help me figure out which driver it is? I have attached my latest dump file.

    Here's my event viewer info:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Date: 12/21/2009
    Time: 1:05:23 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: ----------
    Description:
    Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 b5a88348, parameter3 b5d87b40, parameter4 00000000.

    What Microsoft tells me after reporting the issue:

    Blue screen error caused by a device or driver
    You received this message because a hardware device, its driver, or related software has caused a blue screen error. This type of error means the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from potential data corruption or loss. In this case, we were unable to detect the specific device or driver that caused the problem.

    I had thought maybe it was from leaving USB drives hooked up, but none were hooked up when this most recent crash happened. Help is very appreciated, thanks.
