the 'culprit/s' which caused Blue Screen Of Death of your Windows,
BlueScreenView, a free utility, can help. It is a tiny utility that
scans the dumps of BSOD, analyses the data and provides useful
information to understand the crash. For every crash this application
can display Device driver or module ((filename, product name, file
description, and file version) that possibly caused the crash of the
system, date and time of crash, the device drivers that were loaded
during the crash, and crash details on a blue screen. The application
works with Windows XP,Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008,
Windows Vista, and Windows 7, as long as Windows is configured to
save minidump files during BSOD crashes. No installation required.
