Try reseating the video card and memory sticks. It is most likely a hard ware issue. I had an ATI video card that did this becasue the Catalyst program that came with it was causing problems, ui removed it and installed only the drivers from the disk and now its been working for a year with no problems, this was after about 3 months of having problems.

Try un-installing the drivers and any software that came with it that has to do with the video card, then just install the DRIVERS only and run it for a while and see if it improves.

Also, there may be driver updates online that may help.

Hi. memory dumps like that are mostly always hardware (or drivers) related. If you haven't changed any drivers recently then it's probably hardware. My recommendation would be : 1) In the startup option of Windows (right click My Computer, advanced), disabled the automatic reboot upon memory dump
2) Next time you have a blue screen , identify the DLL or SYS file in the message. if it's always the same element that crashes then you found your problem. Google the driver name and see what is the problem. If you see almost random DLL or SYS files in your blue screen then you have an overheating issue (90% of the time it's the reason) or a simple hardware failure. (pain in the a** but these things happen) also, that doesn't mean the data is gone, but chances are if you can't boot at all ever again with the laptop you'll have to hook it's drive as a slave on another computer and get your data back. BUT keep in mind that the problem you are describing is NOT a HD issue or you would get the typical "NO HDD detected" or "No bootable OS found" post post-test issue. hope that helps !

The video driver is corrupted. Uninstall the one you have now from Programs, reboot at least twice then download (as in Save, not Run) the latest one from here

Wait for the download to end and install it.
If you get the same after that then the video card is dying, replace it.

Hello.
Looking at your specs, I assume that a Pentium 4 is not enough to run these kinds of games, so the overwhelming amount of data going through the cpu may have been causing your system to overheat.
Do these steps:
(1) Uninstall and then re-install your graphics card driver, if problem persists, go to number 2
(2) Try playing around with the ATI Catalyst settings, set everything there to default
(3) If problem still persists, then I -am- sure that your PC and/or graphics card is way too overheated, in this case:
(a) I recommend getting a heat-monitor (doesn't come cheap though) for your PC, to keep yourself notified of the temperatures of your PC
(b) Try buying more fans and if you can afford it get a water-cooling system

Above all, if you can afford a better -Gaming- PC then I'd suggest that, because your system isn't really that great for new games.

Good luck!

XFX GeForce 6200 LE 256mb ddr2 agp8x problem


Your card/ram/mainboard probably can't handle high temperature anymore or has weakened due to overclocking the agp/ram voltage.

Increasing processor's fsb might have an impact on the mainboard and so it has weakened.

You can try to remove the vga and test with onboard vga, if it's still has problems switch the ram (you can borrow your friend's), and finally if it's still has problems switch the mainboard.
