Before we even begin to find the underlying problem you need to update these drivers from as far back as 2004

Code:
senfilt.sys    9/16/2004 10:02:52 PM       
smwdm.sys    1/27/2005 4:31:04 PM        
b57nd60x.sys    4/26/2009 7:15:34 AM      
igdkmd32.sys    5/6/2009 2:13:40 PM
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference

You may be able to use earlier drivers if you install them in compatibility mode.
