Be sure to click OK after reboot when prompted to send the error report
to Microsoft. They collect these reports and will contact the hardware vendor
of the guilty device/driver.
This specific error often occurs in video drivers, but without looking at the
details it is hard to say. You may want to contact ATI tech support, or
Microsoft, if you are still in the 90-day support period.
