Windows XP: System reboots after random time when game is played

  1. Hi guys,

    I'm a wit's end and hoping to rely on the community's expertise to assist!

    My machine reboots after a random amount of time every time I play World of Warcraft. I don't know if this is the only app affected, but if I just work on my computer or watch movies then it doesn't happen. This started about a week or two ago and I'm not sure what's going on because I've been playing WoW for some time now (months) and this has never happened before. The only things I've installed recently is the Avast Antivirus app; nothing else comes to mind (not that I log everything I install of course).

    I've got Windows XP SP2 with an ATI X800 gfx card, P4 2.8 Ghz with 1 gig of DDR400. Don't laugh, I'm due for an upgrade soon :)

    I get this error in the event log:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Date: 2007/12/09

    Description:
    Error code 100000d1, parameter1 00000000, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    I've seen that there are similar errors on the boards here, but I've tried some of the advice (run a memory test, clean out the dust, get the latest network card driver, make a new page file) and the machine still reboots.

    I'd like to upload my latest minidumps and to ask that someone that knows what the mean please comment.

    Thanks guys, looking forward to your reply.

    Regards
    Eugene

    See if you can update the sound card drivers. All the crashes are the same.
