Nir Sofer is the developer of a huge range of Windows utilities and his latest will be of great help to those trying to make sense of the dreaded BSOD.

http://nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

"BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table. For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the minidump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version).
For each crash displayed in the upper pane, you can view the details of the device drivers loaded during the crash in the lower pane. BlueScreenView also mark the drivers that their addresses found in the crash stack, so you can easily locate the suspected drivers that possibly caused the crash."

Well, it took a month and a half of waiting... but I finally was able to test this bad boy out on a genuine Windows Blue Screen of Death.

Neat! Now I don't have to scramble for a pen and paper to write down the error code for future Googling!
