    hi legoman600

    Your first dump indicates a PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e) error. This usually refers to memory corruption. Please run Memtest ( on each stick of RAM individually! .... Let it run overnight - you're looking for a minimum of 7 passes on each stick.

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA is the error on your second dump with tru.exe (Tomb Raider Underworld) being cited as the culprit program and nv4_disp.dll being the probable faulty driver. Update your graphics card drivers to the latest ones from the nvidia website.

    Do get back to us with any results.

    yea I would definitely say it sounds like the graphics card has some sort of issue, if it is only doing that during the game.

    I would say get the burn in diagnostic tool and let it run, it will test your graphics card as well as your memory. It's only a 30 day trial, but it will work long enough to test your system...
