Then when trying to log in for the second time the computer froze at the "please wait while windows logs in" screen.

I'm still leaning towards the video card. Did you ever try installing some older drivers?

Got this with startup items ctfmon, DC++, and aim6 enabled. Was also using winamp to listen to music. This one happened right after the screen saver came on.

Run a REPAIR to your installation of XP.

Doing this will re-register all the hardware and some may be given new IRQ's...let's see if doing this helps. (I'm still leaning towards the video card.)

Ok, I'll do that later tonight.
Don't let this affect your judgment, but I really wouldn't mind if the video card was the problem. Its still under warrenty.

Thanks for sticking with me on this! :whistling:

Okay before I tell you what happened with the repair I thought I'd show you this.
Posted Image
I highlighted what I think was most interesting/intriguing.

Anyway I would like to point out that at any time in the repair process when the computer has to reboot, I must remove the XP cd or this happens:
Posted Image
Also during the repair it asked for a CD which turned out to be my motherboard CD. I only bring this up because windows has never asked me for a different CD than the one that has XP on it.
Posted Image
During the repair I had to leave the computer alone (classes) and it finished on its own. Then it rebooted and I got that "error loading operating system" screen again. I don't think this is a problem though, just a simple matter of rebooting without the CD in the drive.
Then like five seconds after logging in for the first time logging in after the reboot I get this. I'm not sure which startup items were running but I think the repair reset some of them.

Same startup items as last time, wasn't even doing anything intense. Just moving applications from one place to another.
Posted Image
Also since this BSOD all my bookmarks in Firefox have disappeared.

edit: should I disable the majority of these startup items like I was before?

Whenever I try to change the screen saver the screen does this and is irreversible (unless I push the power button which shuts down the computer)

Also the last time I tried to post this I couldn't connect to the net. When I tried to repair the connection I got this:

Left the computer on over night, woke up and it was at the login screen. Event viewer shows this as the last thing to happen:
Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 bf8048ba, parameter3 b9996714, parameter4 00000000

Since the repair the blue screens are coming with a timer and then the computer automatically restarts, whats up with that. It wasn't doing that before.
