  1. A month or so ago my gfx card started crashing and bringing up the BSOD. The message it gives me is as follows:
    It tends to happpen when changing screen sizes, switching between graphily intensive apps.
    My card is a Geforce MX 4000, my OS is WinXP Pro SP2, and my mobo is DFI Lanparty 250gb.

    your post contained minimal information. add some useful information about recent changes, and a detailed description of the problem.

    As Zephead says we need more info before we can help you.

    The exact error message including all the numbers would help.

    You can also go HERE for an explanation of Windows stop messages.

    It may be hardware or software problem. The minidump has the most useful diagnostic information. Attach 3 to 4 minidumps here and you can find the minidumps at the folder \windows\minidump

    I had that too once, the only thing is that its not a videocard problem but a
    memory problem, do you have more then 1 memory module installed?

    if so, go into your bios and (I don't know where the setting was) change the
    clock speed from 400 to 333mhz.

    Don't know if this works for you though but its worth a shot :).

    bye :wave:
