There is one thing we can try called driver verifier.

Basically, I use it if the user get's consistent BSOD's, but doesn't get  any info other than Windows components.  I will use it on systems with a  bunch of different BSOD's - but I don't expect good results from there  (as that is, IMO, mostly hardware issues):
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll  crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash  and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can  log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to  resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure  you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems  arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system  using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press  Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and  click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click  "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.  Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the  crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to  crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier  by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first  page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with  your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in  Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your  installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point  that you created.
If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the  registry entry off-line.
