Windows Vista keeps shutting down unexpectedly

I'm not sure how many times this has happened, or how long it has been going on. The pc seems to run ok for the most part, then it shuts down and pops up a detailed blue screen. The instructions given on the blue screen prompt to either restart the computer in safe mode and uninstall some defective driver or, reboot normally. Then at the bottom of the screen it says Crash Dump initializing, mini dump, etc...
There is usually too much for me to read, and retain before the screen is gone and it starts all over again. I have tried rebooting in safe mode but, don't know which driver is causing the issue.
Upon browsing the topics, I noticed that similar topics included zipped .dmp files, so I hope it's ok that I have posted mine as well.
Any help you could offer regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much! :)
