I randomly get this BSOD maybe twice a week. Here is the error,

Terminal_Server_Driver_Made_Incorrect_Memory_reference

Stop 0x000000CF ( 0xBDCCCCCD, 0x00000000, oxBDCCCCCD, 0x00000002)

Thank you,

If you need any more info, please tell me

The first link provided by Alex had several suggestions, have you tried those? Did it start after installing anything new?

No, I haven't installed anything new recently.

What is a good scanner to check what driver updates I need?

I don't trust any of those scanners. Just look in Device Manager for what hardware you have and go to the manufacturer's website. You'll want to update the chipset drivers of the motherboard, video drivers, sound drivers, network card drivers, and nay other devices you have connected.

Do you have all your Windows Updates installed as well?

And what version of Windows is on the computer?

Yes, I always have windows updates turned on and I just checked on the update site, they are all installed.

I am using Windows XP.

I'll check through the Device Manager

How exactly do I update the drivers? I go to the Device Manager, right click on the certain devices and click "Update Driver...". But there are never any updates found.

No, you go to the manufacturer's website, look up the correct driver and download it. Start by identifying the motherboard model.

SIW may help you identify the hardware: http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
The motherboard manufacturer's site would likely have most of the drivers you need, but for any add-in cards you'd have to go to their website; for example if you have an ATI video card then you'd go to www.ati.com.
