I have been getting this error a awful lot latley with random programs . Mostly games . I noticed though when i change my settings to COMPATIBLE WITH WIN 98 they don't bomb. I am running a ASUS P4-E-800 DELUXE P4 3.0 GHZ 800 FSB 512 x 2 sticks of KINGSTON HYPER X DDR 400 MEMORY 2 RAPTOR 10,000 RPM DRIVES RADEON 9800 PRO 256 MB version And everything is water cooled. I was curious what is the problem or what could be the problem? I have reinstalled windows clean 2 times and I am not sure why I get this . Attached below is a screen shot of the error.
