The problem happened again last night, it seems to be video related. I was watching some fight vids from UFC and such, when it did it again. It happened twice in one night. The second time it happened I was able to write down the numbers located at the STOP section at the bottom. They are as follows:
(0x00000007, 0x00000CD4, 0x024B0004, 0x84EC2538)
Don't know if they are of any help, but I've seen others list/ask for them in the other places I have looked for information.
Sounds like you have an ATI video card.
Uninstall your drivers and reinstall the latest ones.
I had a similar problem and ATI directed me to the latest drivers.
ATI2evxx error message?
General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages
Examine the “System” and “Application” logs in Event Viewer for other recent errors that might give further clues. To do this, launch EventVwr.msc from a Run box; or open “Administrative Tools” in the Control Panel then launch Event Viewer.
If you’ve recently added new hardware, remove it and retest.
Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the manufacturer.
Make sure device drivers and system BIOS are up-to-date.
However, if you’ve installed new drivers just before the problem appeared, try rolling them back to the older ones.
Open the box and make sure all hardware is correctly installed, well seated, and solidly connected.
Confirm that all of your hardware is on the Hardware Compatibility List. If some of it isn’t, then pay particular attention to the non-HCL hardware in your troubleshooting.
Check for viruses.
Investigate recently added software.
Examine (and try disabling) BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
NOTE: When a STOP message occurs, Windows can create a debug file for very detailed analysis. To do this, it needs a workspace equal to the amount of physical RAM you have installed. If you resize your Win XP pagefile minimum to less than the size of your physical RAM, you will get an advisory message that your system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. My advice is to go ahead with this change if you want, but simply remember the limitation so that you can change it back if you need to troubleshoot STOP messages.
Okay, this time it BSODed on me again but with a different error and definitely related to video card. I went and got the most up to date drivers for my card and was playing Thief - Deadly Shadows when it happened. Here is what was on the BSOD:
