An invalid resource owner pointer was...
A driver was using a kernel function and the resource owner pointer provided is invalid. This is a pointer to an allocated system address where the two low-order bits must be set. It may be caused by a bug in a device driver.
This is a fatal Windows error, typically called a Stop message, Bug Check, or more commonly the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). The system is in a forced reboot state. Any unsaved work is likely lost.
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
An invalid resource owner pointer was supplied.

Text may appear differently depending on where the error occurs.
Additional technical information (hex values) specific to a machine are not shown.
Check if you are using the latest hardware drivers, especially the chipset and video drivers. Older drivers are a common contributor to BSoD issues.
You can use a product like Driver Genius or Radar Sync to verify you have the latest drivers and help keep all your drivers up-to-date. If you're comfortable with driver installations, you can individually find and install current drivers.
While BSoD fatal stop errors are identified by Microsoft Windows, they are often caused by
non-Microsoft applications, drivers and hardware issues.
