Is it possible to check which package wrong?

BSOD happens as a result of kernel/driver flaws. Cygwin packages are applications, not kernel/driver code. While it's possible an application may "tickle" the kernel bug, the bug cannot be resolved in or localized to a particular app. If the info from the BSOD doesn't point you to a failing driver or area of the O/S, make sure your O/S is up-to-date with patches and that you're running the latest drivers for your hardware.
