Sudden reboots

Within the last week, my computer will reboot seemingly whenever there's a resolution change during a game (when loading up the game, when tabbing out, when quitting the game, etc.). Here's the reason why I was getting the reboots:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

***STOP 0X0000000A (0X9D0B6240, 0X000000X2, 0X00000000, 0X8051EC1C)

As I understand it, that's a driver related issue. I just reformatted my computer last night, and have only installed the following things for drivers:

-Logitech Mouseware 9.80 drivers
-nVidia ForceWare 67.66 beta drivers (had 66.69 when the problem originally started happening)
-nForce4 6.93 drivers
-AC'97 drivers
-Linksys Wireless 802.11 drivers

What's most unusual is that I don't remember this ever happening when I was playing World of Warcraft a month back when I first got the computer, and I tabbed out of that game nearly ever five minutes. I first noticed the problem when playing the Splinter Cell 3 demo and can easily reproduce the crashing in UT 2004.

Any suggestions?

Alright, I <I>think</I> I've found the reason why I was getting the above. It's something involving a confliction between settings in boot.ini and nVidia ForceWare drivers. I made a quick change, and tried to force a crash through UT2004. Couldn't do it. ;)

So, uh, yeah. The staff can disregard this... unless, of course, I post back in two days saying I didn't fix anything. :tazz:
