Hi there.

The problem:
My desktop (custom built) was running pretty smoothly when I decided to upgrade Nvidia video drivers (have had minor issues with Flight Sim.); downloaded the proper version from Nvidia site, un-installed previous drivers, installed new ones. Since rebooting I now have a BSOD flashing during WinXP splah screen; no way to disable auto-restart so I had to record the boot with a camera in order to read the message:
STOP 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I'm currently able to boot in safe mode, but the herebelow actions undertaken did not solve; so I'm stuck at this point.

Action Taken:
- restore to last known good configuration
- un-install Nvidia Video drivers and clean with Driver Cleaner Pro + install original (came with card) Nvidia drivers
- repeated the above procedure with an intermediate version of drivers
- un-installed and phsically removed hardware as USB card, wireless USB adapter, N.2 HD
- tried to remove each memory banks
- scan with AVG2011 and Malwarebytes

The system:
Motherboard: Asus A8N-E
GraphicAdapter: Asus EN6600GT
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 dual core
HD: N.2 250GB in RAID (Nvidia)
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2

Thanks to anyone will give me some suggestion.
