Default Another Stop Error

Hello all!!! No problems here...yea right i wish. I have recently built my new computer and it has been restarting at random times because of a "unknown device driver". One of the times it restarted was when I was playing a game on the internet and boom it restarts and then pops up the error report saying that is has recoverd from a serious error. When i sent the error report to microsoft this is what came back:

Error caused by a device driver

Thank you for sending an error report to Microsoft.

Information about this error

You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.

I was thinking I had some bad drivers for my graphics cards since they are from different manufacturers in SLI mode, but i re-downloadedand installed new ones after i uninstalled the old ones. you can probably tell my computer is still restarting randomly. Now if anyone knows anything about this, could u please help me. Thank you!!!

First boot into Safe Mode, run the PC for a bit and see if the problem persists. If it does not, then that will narrow down which driver could be causing the problem. If it does persisit, chec the Windows Event Log, that should poiint you towards the device causing the problem.
