    The file mxopswd.sys that is referenced in the error message is to do with a Maxtor external hard drive. It's found in c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\application data\maxtorThe.File should be located in up to three locations in your computer.

    To solve mxopswd.sys blue screen problem you can use the following method :
    Uninstall the software (driver for Maxtor external hard drive) and delete the folder that contains its remnants i think File mxopswd.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers. First delete that software before Uninstalling driver and before you reboot.
