My computer is using windows ME with an AGP Nvidia GeForce video card. My problem is I can't start windows. I get through the windows loading screen, then right before it goes to desktop, the screen flashes a second, then the monitor goes into sleep mode. When I try to enter Safe Mode, it shows a blue screen with error 03 : 0167:00000001. Then I click enter, and it gives me a Windows protection error. The weird thing about this is that it started when I installed PowerDVD. Everything worked fine until then. Is my video card broken?

Update: I exchanged the video cards, but I still get the same errors. One time I got an error saying that Windows could not load gdi.exe and I should reinstall windows. What is causing these errors?

Thanks in advance.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I reinstalled windows. Now everything appears to be ok. I guess it was not a hardware problem. Thanks anyway.
