at work i have a pc that has crashed several ( about 12 ) times. I use windbg to read the minidump files, and about 10 of the 12 minidump files say that the file

pci.sys

is to blame. 2 of the files says it's the

Hpqbkfilt.sys

file, and we use only HP pc's. for the Hpqbkfilt.sys file, i found that it works to remove that file, i haven't had a problem doing that. However, to me, the pci.sys file sounds like something i shouldn't touch.
My question is, has anyone else run into something like this? if so, did you find a good solution to fix this, or would it be better to cut my loses and just re-image the pc?

Beware accepting the results of a windbg dump analysis.  It is not a proper analysis, all it does is find the first non-microsoft thing in the stack and report it as the problem.  If there are none then it just reports the one at the top of the stack.
Please post your exception stack here as well as the bugcheck code and its four parameters.  Sometimes these can lead to a particular device and updating device driver/firmware may solve the issue without need to re-image.
If there is a hardware issue, re-image wont fix it anyway.
