I been getting some BSOD's in the past maybe couple months but i'm not getting any stop codes just the numbers, normally it comes when watching videos usually from you tube.

I have recently updated my computer by changing the motherboard, cpu and ram and was having sound issues so i also changed my hard drive and re=installed windows XP.

The problem had started with my old system probably a few months ago but didn't happen all the time, It seems to be happening a lot more frequent now.

All my drivers are up to date.

I am running windows XP home edition, amd phenom II x2 560 black edition (extra cores unlocked), 4gbs of ram, 250 gb hard drive

Go to Device Manager, then right click on the video card.
One of the options should be to rollback the driver.
If not then try to update it then.

That would depend on the motherboard or the branded system.
First place to check is the manufacture's website as that is where all the drivers should be. If no luck there then download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.
