I hope this helps with the two drivers.

Your mouse driver is up to date - even though is blamed for the crash in the dump. You might try downloading a fresh copy of the driver and reinstall it. I would first run your system now that you have removed SPTD and see if you get another BSOD.

Carl- the question is where to find his mouse drivers.

The BSOD's only happen periodically, and this time, it didn't happen, but that doesn't say much, it might not happen today but a few days from now it might again.

This mouse driver would work, correct? Software & Driver Downloads HP HDX Laser Mouse - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Device Manager has the mouse described as HP HDX Mouse, and that's the only one that comes up.

I've updated the Gear driver but unfortunately haven't been able to find the driver for Packet Sniffer.

Also, if this is helpful, the past two days, when I tried to shutdown the computer it would get stuck at the Shutting down... screen for 30+ minutes, and then it would bluescreen, giving me a Driver State Power Failure, and I'd have to pull the plug and put it back in, get to the login screen, then turn off to get it off successfully. I experimented this morning with shutting down all my background programs in Task Manager before shutting down, and it's worked something like 4, 5 times now. However, just a time or two ago it crashed again, but I'm suspecting Firefox or something didn't close down completely as I'd forgotten to check in Task Manager that time. I can put up the Minidump for that one.

Those drivers are even older than your current ones, so I don't recommend installing them.

I am running the other dumps now, but it appears that your mouse was the cause in all of them. Forget about the other drivers for the time being and concentrate on the mouse. If you have another mouse you can use instead, try it.

Alright, I won't. I unfortunately don't have a spare hanging around anywhere.

So without the spare, what should be my next step?

Try uninstalling the mouse in Device Manager, and then rebooting. Let Windows install drivers automatically, do not install any drivers that you download or find on a CD.

Awrighty. Should I have checked delete driver software? I didn't and restarted, no BSOD's thus far.

I can't really say, to be honest.

If the BSODs continue, try it again and this time tick the box.

Otherwise, I hope it is solved!

Heh, me too. Thanks for all the help! If it does BSOD again, I'll post here again, if it's alright.
