1. Everything was running well until last night when I got a BSOD
2. restart and got into windows again but before long I got another BSOD. I didn't get write it down before it restarted. All I remember was that it didn't cite a particular program/file but did offer a memory address.
3. During this restart I boot safe mode (xp) with networking but it restarts again.
4. resart it several more times each time having it crash at various points
5. the last thing I tried was booting to a CD (memtest 86) but it crash right away
6. Didn't seem to crash while in bios

Computer:
I'm running windows xp SP3(32 bit?)
Gigabyte K8Triton nForsce SLI
AMD 3500 64bit
Nvidia Gforce 7800
2GB RAM Corsair XMS 2x1GB
windows install on a 150GB Western Digital HD
also a 300GB Hitachi HD


I had a similar problem previously: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic454226.html/page__p__2704867__fromsearch__1#entry2704867
Me and Acryptodan got my PC to a point where it was working well but cryptodan stopped correspondence before we totally wrapped things up.

This time it seems more severe because I cannot get it to windows safe mode. (hardware issue?)

Thanks so much in advance for your assistance.

Update:

So I got my pc to boot to safemode and did a system restore. Went back to safemode (w/ networking) and ran malwarebytes which came up clean.

Then I booted it up regularly and got into windows where I was greeted with the following error regarding Microsoft security client:

an error has occured in the program during initialization. If problem continues contact your system administrator. Error code: 0x80070715

So, I try to uninstall MSE and it tells me files are missing and I need to install it first. I go to get MSE intaller on the internet and I get the same BSOD which i now see says the following:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

and has the following stop:

0x000000D1 (0xf05005F6, 0x00000007, 0x00000008, 0xF05005F6)

Seems inconsistent with the crashing I was seeing earlier. I have not changed any of my drivers but I guess I'll see if there are any updates. Thinking I'll also carefully vacuum the dust incase it was overheating. (temp gauge on case seems to think its fine but it probably shouldn't be trusted.)

Update 2:
Updated a driver for my video card. When I restarted it froze after a short time in windows.

This does not look like malware. That error usually means...........
An attempt was made to address virtual memory on internal process IRQ level that is too high.
Possible reasons are:
faulty driver
faulty RAM
corrupt file on virtual memory.
