Hi

Could you please post the Stop Code from the BSOD and if present, the Event

You may have a NVIDIA Network Resource Manager driver problem. If you look
in the Device Manager you should see a NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator entry
and nvnrm.sys is one of the drivers. Check and see if you have the latest
drivers for the NF4 chipset. (But you say you've done this.)

One thing you could try is to turn off the Data Execution Protection which
can be the cause of blue screen problems for some systems. Right click on My
Computer, select Properties, select the advanced tab, click on the
Performance settings button, and select the DEP (Data Execution Prevention)
tab and turn it off.

As Will Denny stated we may be able to help you more if you are able to post
the STOP code.

Not sure you can turn DEP off any longer - especially if you've installed
SP2.

Sorry about any confusion my post may have caused.

Look in the System Properties under the Advance Tab and then Performance
Settings>DEP tab. You can turn off DEP if you wish.

Ah, ha.

Interesting. I can only conclude that since my computer's processor does not
support DEP I do not have this selection. I was wondering why my Google
search showed this option - even though I do not see it in my DEP tab.

Thank you for the clarification.

i have tried to replicate the problem i have, and for some reason i still
get bsod, but a different one!!

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
stop:0x0000000A (0x00000003,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x804f8a57)
i can surf web for ages, then all of a sudden the system will crash to a bsod.
its been a while since i updated the nforce drivers, but they have not
posted any new ones as yet.
i`m sure it was the last drivers i installed before having problems

I think you are on the correct track thinking it is a driver problem. The
error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL is somewhat of a clue.

My experience suggests that sometimes it is better to uninstall a driver
before installing. This assumes of course that you have a know good working
driver for Windows XP.
