Now and then my PC will get this error. It tends to happen when I use the internet and have internet windows opened. The screen will flicker and if I do happen to close all the windows in time sometimes it will go back to working. However sometimes the entire computer will freeze up and a blue screen will appear for only a second. What I do catch is watchdog.sys before it proceeds to restart the computer.

It looks like there is a problem with the NVIDIA driver. See if there is a more current drive that you can download.

Also look in the Device Manager to see if there are any errors.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

it says other devices and several "Unknown device" question marks in the sub menu

Hi -
If you Double click on the Unknown device, do you get any devices showing at all ??

"Product Name : NVIDIA Windows XP Display driver, Version 296.10" appears in several of the Bluescreen problems -

Have you been to the NVIDIA site to check the drivers, or just the usual click Update Driver in Device manager ??
This is not the best way to check, as you quite often get a false reply that a "Better driver could not be found" -

Always use the Makers site only -

Thank You -

Yes I have updated it to it's most optimum driver. Still same result

Double clicking the unknown devices gets these:

The unknown device reads this in the details tab

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10DE&DEV_0014&SUBSYS_10DE0101&REV_1001\5&1D227DF5&0&0001


This is the same for every yellow question mark.

Hi -
I have found a few drivers that are very similar to what you need to add -

You could list the Full Make and Model of computer and post a snapshot with Speccy as this may give us a bit more to look at -
Publish a Snapshot using Speccy <<=Follow These Directions

This may give me the final destination that I am heading towards -

Thank You -

The Speccy report shows a high uncorrectable sector count of 200. I would suggest going to Western Digital's web site and download their diagnostic tool and run both the short and long tests. With the high number of uncorrectable sectors your hdd could be on its way out.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
