If you are having problems with lockups, blue screens, or can only get to safe mode, often the problem is due to a faulty device driver.

One way to help identify them is through the use of the Verfier program

1. Start / Run / Verifier

2. Keep the default of Create Standard Settings

3. Select the type of drivers you want to confirm

4. A list of drivers to be verified on the next boot will be shown.

5. Reboot

6. If your computer stops with a blue screen, you should get an error message
with the problem driver

7. To turn off the Verifier, run verifier /reset
