BSOD when playing Final Fantasy XI (online)

Hi guys, I hope you can help with my problem. In the last 5-6 days I've been experiencing BSOD's and random reboots mainly when i'm playing games.

In my event log I have an entry whoch is as follows:
The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN_GENERIC-&PROD_COMPACT_FLASH&REV_1.00#20060413092100000&0#.

I'm not sure if this is the cause but I found an article that it maybe to the card reader I have installed in my PC (i'm no expert so i'm probably wrong).

I just don't know how to stop it and really need some assistance. I have attached my SF logs as per the sticky

Hello Scizor1985.

I hate any obstacles during final fantasy. And, FF7 is the best.

Update the following drivers.
Also, if possible, try to update the BIOS.
BIOS Version/Date    Alienware A11, 10/11/2010
Let us know the results.

BTW, the zip does not contain any crash dump, and the event log also does not indicating to a BSOD.
Still follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hi Arc, I have updated my graphics card and my wireless card as requested, so far I haven't had any BSOD. Its early days but its looking promising.

And the message that kept appearing in my event log seems to have stopped. Ill be attempting a bios update tonight just to be sure.

I've also setup the minidump just in case it does come back!

Thanks for your assistance and I hope I wont have to take up any more of your time!

ps. FF6 is by far the best final fantasy!!
