  1. Ok today i booted my computer and my friend went to play WC3TFT and playing for about 20 minutes and the computer blue screened with a memory reference error. He attempted to play it about 3 more times and the same thing kept happening. I run a pirated corporate edition of windows xp with many registrys tweaks i put in myself and have around 40 of the useless services that windows defaulty turns on disabled. The only thing that i have done recently is disable the onboard RAID controller that came with my motherboard. I also tried playing Neverwinter Nights(both expansions) and with in 5 minutes of everytime i tried to play it crashed.
    I run:
    AMD Athlon 2.4ghz cpu
    Geforxe mx440 /w tv out
    Soundblaster Audigy 2
    40 gig hd

    It seems to me its a video conflict but i dont see how because it just randomly started happening.
