    You seem to have cut off the Bugcheck code from the posting, just before the (. But in order to get better help, you need to check the BSOD forum and look at the Sticky about How to get help with BSODs.

    A snipping tool picture of your Device Manager window might help and attach using the paperclip in the Advanced replies window.

    But until then, have you tried right clicking the problem device and selected update driver software?

    Just is case Windows is hiding empty drives, you might check the Control Panel, Folder Options, and go to the View tab. There is a checkbox for "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder" you may need to uncheck.

    A picture of the Disk Management would also help.

    Take a snip with the snipping tool (in All Programs > Accessories) or make a Print Screen ( a PRT Scrn button on the top on your keyboard. Then save it in Paint) and attach it with the icon in the picture. You have to 'From Computer and 'Select file' from where you stored it and then click on 'Upload'.
