    I've been getting a lot of BSOD on my XP notebook (P4 3ghz, 784 ram). Sometimes it will say an ACPI.sys error, or a Bad Pool Caller, etc.

    I've done some looking and it seems it's a bad driver (well, other posts say that).

    How do you go about finding which driver it is? There's gotta be 100s of them.....

    There is a very easy method by doing a File Signature Verification. This can be done by Start -> Run and then type sigverif. On the subsequent screen select 'Advanced' and then click on 'Look for other files that are not digitally signed'. Also then click on 'Browse' button. Follow the screen messages and select C: out of it. Then push 'OK'. Then click on 'Start'. It should display all the UnsignedDrivers
