I keep getting blue screen error messages, usually when playing The Sims 2. The message is below. Anyone know what it means?

stop: 0x0000008E(0xC0000005,0xBFA72797,0F67896980x00000000)

nv4_disp.dll - address BFA72797 base at BF9D3000,datestamp 00000000

I actually missed a bit at the beginning. On the second time it happened I got roughly the same message but noted what it said at the start. It was

'The problem seems to be caused by the following faulty file.


I've also had messages mentioning 'BAD POOLS' (??)
