Problem Reports and Solutions applet found in Control Panel. From there you
can report system errors to Microsoft for research and see if there are
workarounds/fixes already available.
Or, you can try and analyze crash dump file that Windows creates when STOP
error (BSoD) occurs by yourself. In many cases crash dump analysis will
allow you to determine exact cause of the error. You can download "Debugging
Tools for Windows" from Microsoft web site and use them to analyze crash
However, the problem with debugging tools is that it may be a bit too

That's why I wrote a script that simplifies the process by parsing debugger
output and presenting only minimum amount of information that might be
useful in tracking the cause of error. My local IT community was using it
for some time and feedback was quite positive so I decided to post it on my
Hope this helps.
