May need to format and reload, or it may be bad memory, or a number of other things. That's not a problem thats gonna be solved without doing some diagnosing........

Can you get your DirectX panel out (DXDIAG) and do some checking with that and post results??

Is the fan on your vid card operating and clean??

Also, please post some system spec so that we can get an idea of your hardware......;)

How to uninstall nView:

Download This file www.geocities.com.bobownzjoo/nv4_disp.inf
download the 29.42 drivers and save them somewhere
right click on the .exe and extract the files to a folder (dont install them)
Move the new .inf to the folder with the extracted files
Now, goto control pannel>>>add/remove programs and remove the NVidia 2000/XP display drivers
Restart Computer
WinXP will detect the new hardware, when the wizard asks for what drivers to use, choose manual selection. locate the folder where you extracted the files, and select the .inf
nView is now non-existant. If you want, you can goto your \Windows\System32 folder and remove all nView associated .dlls, but you dont have to. This should fix your problem, and if it doesnt, pesky nView is gone

Yes i know what you are talking about, i had a similar problem with the PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA BSOD. I was told that was due to a problem with the RAM. I later discovered that nView was the cause of the RAM issue. Removing nView fixed the problem for me.

just to point something out FYI, there is no way in hell your drives spin at 72,000 rpm. i'm sure you mean 7200 rpm :D
