However, when this happened I hit CtrlScrollScroll again to attempt a BSOD but it did nothing--or so I thought. Upon restarting another file the same exact size as the last (RAM limitation?) appeared. This time instead of being named 'MEMORY.DMP' (which I still have by the way) it is now named 'DUMP2d56.tmp'.
Just curiously, who told you about this?
Can you try putting your graphics card on another PCI slot? I'll come back with more suggestions later...
Sorry for such a late response...my classes have had me really busy recently once again.
I learned of that as I was trying to identify the issue. Initially believing it to be driver-related I was hoping a BSOD before the Freeze occurred would net me positive results. So, I found a way to enable it within the registry and set to work trying to get it to work right before the PC froze. I tested it within safe-mode just to ensure it did indeed work (it did), and then tried it in normal mode. Unfortunately, CtrlScrollScroll just made the computer immediately freeze and do the distortion immediately. No matter what I tried it would always do a freeze at any point in normal mode. That's why I still think it is a driver issue of some sort. As it works in Safe Mode but not normal.
I can try that but will need to do it some-time tomorrow night after classes.
Thanks again for all the help.
