Maybe it's a temperature related problem.Youll have to clean the Video Card and CPU heat sink (better with compressed air) :

>Disconect the computer.
>open it up
>carefully take the video card out, watch for screws and plastic lock at the AGP/PCI/PCI express slot.
>spray compressed air to clean the heatsink.
>attemp to take the cpu heatsink out too. if not possible just spray the air to the heatsink inside the computer.
>spray every slot and port with the compressed air
>reinstall vid card and CPU heatsink.
>accomodate al the cables to increase airflow
>check everything properly conected
>close everythinkg

Also I would replace the flat IDE cables with round cables to increase airflow.

If that is not helping, maybe its better to monitor your CPU, RAM and vid card temp.

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers

There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

Nav4_disp conflict?

The nv4_disp fix I was able to successfully restore my computer to tip-top shape in 5 easy steps. Here’s my 10 minute solution.
  1. Boot your computer into Safe Mode w/ Networking. For Windows XP users, this is accomplished by pressing F8 repeatedly when your computer is booting up. You will be presented with several options. Choose “Safe Mode w/ Networking.” This will boot Windows XP into Safe Mode, but you will be able to browse the Web.
  2. Go to NVIDIA’s Web site and download the latest display drivers for Windows XP. I saved the 20MB file to my desktop for easy locating later on.
  3. Remove the NVIDIA display drivers currently installed on your machine. To do this, right click on “My Computer,” then select Properties. Click the “Hardware” tab, then click “Device Manager.” You now see a list of hardware devices installed on your computer. Double click “Display Adapters.” You should now see your NVIDIA card listed. Click it once to highlight it, then click the “Uninstall” icon in the upper right of Device Manager menu. Say “peace!” as the NVIDIA drivers are removed from your machine.
  4. Install the updated NVIDIA display drivers. Double-click the NVIDIA setup file you saved to the desktop earlier. The installation will run its course.
  5. Reboot your computer.
After following these steps, Windows XP should start up as usual (prior to our little nv4_disp bug). Your “nv4_disp” problem is officially solved.
What caused the nv4_disp problem? In short, I have no idea. I’m actually still trying to figure this out, so I welcome any comments about what could have been the cause. In doing some quick searches across the Web, however, I see that this is actually a common problem.

Geforce 6800GT conflict with windows xp pro

Have you run a virus or spyware scan of your machine? Is your virus and spyware up to date? While running @ 640x480 does it exibit any other errors? lsass.exe is a system process of the Microsoft Windows security mechanisms. It specifically deals with local security and login policies. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: lsass.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. Note: lsass.exe is registered as a downloader. This process usually comes bundled with a virus or spyware and its main role is to do nothing other than download other viruses/spyware to your computer. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. DON'T REMOVE THE LSASS.EXE let a virus/ spyware program determine if its good or bad. you can download virus cleaner (avast is my favorite virus protection) windows defender, spybot S&D, AdAware, HighJack This to clean the machine. Then download and install the latest drivers from here: Driver Installation Hints * "Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers. * Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly. * Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove. Get back to me if none of that works. Good Luck, Tim
