Default Re: First BSOD

Another day, another BSOD. AGAIN it was while I was playing CSS. When it happened, I tried reading the screen for anything that it said, it said something about video adapters, but I don't know if it says that for each BSOD. Anyways, the whocrashed app, it says the same thing as last time,
On Mon 7/5/2010 4:46:20 PM your computer crashed
This was likely caused by the following module: win32k.sys
Bugcheck code: 0x1000008E (0xC0000005, 0x96C864A0, 0x8B1E3BF0, 0x0)
Dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\070510-23010-01.dmp
file path: C:\Windows\system32\win32k.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: Multi-User Win32 Driver
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect, possibly the culprit is in another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.
So I'm pretty sure it's that file. I'm reading up on it now. Any further suggestions?

EDIT: I was convinced that it was a nvidia driver issue because it always occurred during CSS and CSS crashes often. when looking at the driver site, it said 257.21, right now, I have 195.62- Wow, I'm far behind, lol. I'm updating now.
