    Personally I would suspect these things - possibly in this order:-

    RAM (swap out sticks and test)
    System temperature Stability issues (Review cooling/paste/dust heatsinks)
    Modem/USB/Via Chipset Drivers (Check for latest)
    BIOS update (Check for latest)
    Graphics drivers

    Why do I put your graphics drivers last? Because you yourself say it only happens with online gaming. Why do I not put your Modem drivers higher? Because I know from hard experience this is a favourite BSOD for bad RAM and I have equally experienced it with an overheating Athlon.

    Welcome to OSNN and I hope this resolves your problems!

    i recommend in the future you create a bios rescue disc if you have not done so.

    Ouch - could invest in foolproof "BIOS Savior" gizmo too if you want to guard against this for future - glad you are laughing though - that would have me right annoyed.

    One thing - consider investing in a RAM stick or two when ordering your mobo - I have a feeling you may need it (plus a spare stick or so never goes amiss, heh?)

    found a post off some guy on the net he was haveing same problems he say

    I figured it out! For the last two weeks sending mail in Eudora caused windows 2000 to crash. I would get a BSOD saying DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. The error reports it as happening in the file NDIS.SYS and that it is now BEGINNING DUMP OF PHYSICAL MEMORY.

    Also, about two weeks ago i installed the latest drivers for my Linksys LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter(LNE100TX v4) network card. This was the problem. Apparently, ndis.sys doesn't always play well with others. So i reinstalled the original drivers that came with my card, once again regaining my email proficiency.

    02/18/2002 UPDATE

    I jinxed myself. Shortly after writing this entry my computer crashed again after a 2 week hiatus.

    So i removed the Linksys network card and put in a cheap one. Haven't had any problems since

    i have had problems with my on board ethernet i wonder if that could be it coz it only crashes when i play online
