Everything was fine til a couple of weeks ago. Was playing WOW and it started crashing. Then computer started restarting on its own. Warcraft error code was "invalid access to memory, can't write to memory). At that time one of the messages I was getting was "driver irql not less or equal". Reformatted hard drive and reinstalled Windows, updated Windows and now get all sort of errors. I tend to think the video card (Radeon Sapphire 9200SE) went bad but I have no idea. I have gotten the following codes (probably more as I didn't start writing them down right away): driver irql not less or equal, irql not less or equal, kernel date inpage error, can't load hive file, page fault in nonpaged area, access violation at 0X7C91084B-tried to write to 0X0003OFFC, pfn list corrupt, registry file missing-recovered from log, thread stuck in device driver. A specific hardware device hasn't been listed but the files ntfs.sys and win32k.sys were listed as having problems.

Next step is to replace video card to see if thats the problem...or just trash the system and get another one.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

I would suggest that you take out every PCI and AGP card you have and then try to do another fresh install of Windows XP. If you still have problems then you at least have narrowed the problem down a little.

p.s.--also, delete the existing partition(s) and let windows create a new one, and on format, do a normal complete format, not quick
