Finding Faulty Device Driver - Vista?

I'm getting a BSOD in Vista.

BCCode:1
BCP1: 8281D2F6
BCP3: 0000FFFE

If I'm correct then this is typically due to a bug in a device driver (APC_Index_Mismatch)

I've checked through Device Manager and there are no warning symbols on the devices.

I've run a verifier check in Vista for all the drivers. This did not identify any drivers. The screen just stayed blue for a while before starting.

At present the PC starts but it stays blue for a period of time after login. It is also running very slowly.

How can I identify which driver is causing the issue?

Going into Task Manager and seeing if something is using an excessive amount of CPU resources (a high percentage) might give a clue as to the problem.

@mgmmc: I couldn't see anything that was overly excessive. svchost.exe - Host Process for Windows Services was at the top.

@Seth: would that do the same as this?:
