Howdy, I'm a new member. Name is Donald, otherwise known as "Donald Lee McDaniel Esq".
If I may interject, I am coming to see that buggy ATI video drivers appear to be a big cause of many BSODs in Windows.
It is true for both XP and Vista.
Everytime I've experienced a BSOD under either XP or Vista, the rascally driver almost always turned out to be an ATI driver. On the otherhand, I have never had a BSOD caused by a video driver under either XP or Vista with an nVidia card controlling the video.
This may be true pretty much across-the-board in the field of video card manufacturers. They just can't seem to adjust to Microsoft's video model. Of course, Microsoft is pretty much a lumbering bull charging through the camp. It's either Microsoft's way, or the highway, no doubt about that. Even though Microsoft's way might turn out to be the wrong way (witness the former-day "Windows ME" and the current "Windows Vista" -- otherwise known as "Windows ME II").
Whether this disparity in drivers is attributable to the quality of engineers each manufacturer is willing to pay for, or attributable to Microsoft getting stubborn in its old-age, and refusing to compromise with those engineers, I still recommend trying a different video card.
Since I've had my best luck with nVidia-based cards, I suggest one from a third-party manufacturer, such as eVGA or xFX. My current eVGA card is providing excelllent service, and I never get a BSOD when using it which isn't caused by my own foolishness.
Whether it would be better to obtain one from a third-party or from nVidia itself I can't really judge. Either way, you will pay less and get more from a third-party manufacturer who uses authentic nVidia chips
