    My computer has been crashing lately, many times it happens when the computer is coming out of hibernation. This is the most recent one.

    Stop code: 0x40000080 (0x8a6ac130, 0x89f4ff30, 0xba4d7bb8, 0x00000003)

    Please help in identifying and fixing the problem.

    Looks like network card driver. Download latest for you OS from Intel, uninstall old ones and upgrade. Also, try using one of preconfigured power modes.

    The site said all my drivers are up to date.

    If it matters the computer is a Vostro 200 Desktop with windows xp service pack 3. Is there any other information I can give that might help?

    Where the blue screen error is reported, is not necessarily where it first started and may not be the cause.
    Some reasons for Blue Screens
    New hardware - Software installed.
    Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
    Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.

    Check Device Manager

    Check for exclamation marks.
    If a driver is needed - always go to the manufacturers website.
