  1. CPU: AMD 4000+
    Motherboard:Asus A8N SLI
    RAM: 2x512 Corsair Value-Select
    GPU: Asus/Nvidia 7800GT
    PSU: "the Best Power" MT-500P
    OS: Windows Home XP

    I receive a BSOD at random times, but only at my house. research seems to point to it being something with the Nvidia Firewall, as I get NVTcp.sys that comes up on the BSOD.

    My system used to work fine, I brought it to a friend's house to try and work on it, and it never crashed there, the only difference in setup was him have a UPS backup, I went out and bought one to see if it would fix the problem, no luck, I have updated the BIOS and th Chipset as well as un-installing the Nvidia Firewall. I have tried plugging it into different parts of the house with no luck. I have also tried updating the video card drivers as well as rolling back to old ones.
    When I updated the BIOS, I did not receive any errors for a bout a day and a half. then the problem came back, the same thing when I hooked up the UPS backup.

    Please help, this is really starting to get old.
    Also if having mini-dumps would help, I'd be happy to attach them, if I knew how, I am posting from my laptop right now, my desktop wont stay up for more than 5-10 minutes.

    Upgrade nVidia Firewall

    All of your minidumps show that your windows is crashed at nVidia Firewall.
    Your version of nVidia Firewall is same as this problem

    Your version is on Apr 2005. Upgradre or de-install nVidia Display Card Driver will resolve the blue screen problem.
