Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Windows BSOD Error: 0x0000008E

Hello everyone,

This is my first post, so bear with me.

I have an IBM Thinkpad T43 with Windows Ultimate x86, and just today, I have received blue screens every time I log in. I have attached the BSOD ZIP file.

Thank you everyone!

Seriously old drivers that need updating before we can look for the underlying cause.

How To Find Drivers:
- 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.
