    i've been playing alot of games lately (morrowind, gta3, dungeon siege, warcraft 3, fifa 2002) and after i've been playing for a while, i get a funky memory dump error. the cool navy blue windows one. sometimes, whatever the last sound was skips for an infinite ammount of time and then i have to reboot. i have the latest nvidia detonators, latest audigy drivers. i've heard that on asus boards, there may be a tweak in the BIOS that fixes this.

    my configuration:

    XP Pro
    Asus A7V133, AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.4GHZ 266 fsb
    768mb [pc 133] micron ram (1) 512 (1) 256
    30gb western digital HD
    60gb quantum fireball HD
    Creative audigy soundcard
    generic geforce 2 MX AGP video card

    I dunno how to fix it, I haven't had a problem with it, basically, what it is, (I believe) is that the game you were playing:

    A.) Overwrote something in the RAM that the OS needed to function.


    B.) Dumped some of your memory that it didn't need anymore, along with some critical system stuff your PC needed to function.

    I would try turning off Video BIOS Shadow in your BIOS, that may help it...other than that you could buy more RAM...

    But don't take my word on this for what it is...I can't tell you that this is it 100%.
