    Sounds like a graphics card problem to me. You probably need to get the latest drivers for your graphics card.

    You can usually look in your event viewer (Start>Run>eventvwr) and see what caused the system to crash. It might be a mess to read but it will usually give you at least a general idea of which direction to look.

    It says unknown device driver error, but i have the latest driver from nvidia.. I have a nvidia gforce f5200. Is there another place to get a driver from instead of nvidia.com

    -Reboot continued....

    -Well, I had a similar prob that gradually worsened.

    My 3.0 Northwood died prematurely. I RMA'd it to Intel and they sent me a brand new one after validating my claim.

    -Good luck.
