Previous Problem that has been solved:
----------------
When online, I will get a BSOD. It always says the same thing; ***Stop: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005 0X8053BA08, 0XB7C609EC, 0X00000000).

Current errors:
------
***Stop: 0X000000C5 (0X0075003D, 0X00000002, 0X00000001, 0X8054B168).
*I/O SYSTEM VERIFICATION ERROR in fsvga.sys (WDM driver error 21f) [fsvga.sys+21a4 at F69D71A4].
*Fsvga.sys says:
------
*This program cannot be run in DOS mode.
*DEVICE/FSVideo.
*The Full Screen Video devices do not exist or were not detected.
*Not enough memory was available to allocate internal storage needed for the device %1.
*The hardware locations for %1 could not be translated to something the Memory Management System understands.
*The hardware resources for %1 are already in use by another device.
------
*An attempt was made to write to a read-only memory.
*Ntfs.sys - Address f722E365 base at f7209000, Datestamp 48025be5.

System info:
----------------
*Windows XP HE SP3.
*300GHz Pentium 4 CPU.
*Sony VAIO, about 5 year old.
*1TB Western Digital external hard drive; My Book Essential, less than a year old.
*C drive; 37% free space. K drive; 88% free space.

Card information:
-----------------
*3VGA nVidia 7600GT card.
*Probably 5 years old.
*I play lots of PC games for long periods of time.
*It has a fan blowing directly on it.
*It hasn't taken kindly to the past few driver updates, even after uninstalls with fresh installs.
*Has been sluggish lately, especially after that last Sam & Max maraton.

Steps taken:
----------------
*Defrag both drives after every installation/uninstall.
*Chkdsk run on both drives.
*Avast antivirus & Threatfire firewall show no infections.
*CCleaner run regularly after surfing or playing web games.
*Shockwave, Java, Flash, Quicktime, & Firefox plugins updated.
*Old Java updates removed from both C drive & Firefox add-ons.
*Firefox has a plethora of security add-ons, including McAfee Site Advisor.
*Checked online to see if anyone has posted the exact same message.
*On suggestion, ran Rustbfix.exe; no rootkit found.
*Windows Updates are all installed.
*Checked for unfamiliar running processes.
*I have a fan on my CPU & my GPU.
*I have dusted off the inside of my tower.
*Firefox uninstalled & reinstalled.
*Graphics card uninstalled & reinstalled in safe mode.

Steps not yet attempted:
-------------------------------
*Underclocking.
*Disabling the card & switching to onboard graphics. (Edit: Trying this one right now).
*Driver rollback.
*Posted anything from Even Viewer.

BSOD always/only occures while playing browser games in firefox. Haven't attempted to play offline games since the errors started appearing.

Have you tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it? perhaps with a newer version? Also, have you tried turning OFF your firewalls, and seeing if it still does it? Im reading a lot of stuff about that error being an incompatibility between many firewalls and video card drivers in SP2. I see that you have SP3, but its worth a try.

Yes, I did uninstall & reinstall, & I installed the latest drivers, in safe mode. Maybe I should do a few rollbacks, as the last 3 have not worked well, & I made sure they were the right updates for the right card.

This card & my firewall have been working fine together for over a year.

Heh, I just did a windows update 3 days ago, but sure enough when I went there today, there were 8 new ones.

So I disabled my graphics card. I'm going to give it 3 days to see if the problem stops. My computer is really fast now that it's off. I hope that's a good sign for this particular problem. I REALLY hope it's jsut my card; that's much cheaper to replace than a whole computer :thumbsup:

I rarely see a whole computer crash. So not much worry there, its just diagnosing whats wrong-its either a defective video card, or a software clash somewhere.

I disabled the video card & have been problem-free for days. Too bad I can't afford a new one until Xmas >_>
