last night I left a computer on to download some stuff, later on I noticed the lights of my router not flashing - obviously not a good sign for downloads

So I went to said PC and it had crashed :yuck:

There is nothing in the log of the actual crash, but there is this:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: Save Dump
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1001
Date: 9/03/2008
Time: 10:42:53 a.m.
User: N/A
Computer: INTEL550
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c5 (0x00b8000a, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8053e05b). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini030908-01.dmp.

Which microsoft tell me is "DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291810)

They talk about using driver verifier to find out what might be causing the problem, does anyone here know how to use that?

The short answer seems to be a corrupt driver.
