Hi guys,
Ive been having alot of bsods lately, normaly exactly like the one you will find a picture of below.
I have a gigabyte gtx460 super oc , with windows xp32bit. I think this is a driver related problems as i dont rember having these before i installed the latest drivers from the nvidea site "6.14.12.6658" . I also have a problem where my pc randomly restarts on its own could this be related if not what can that be?Thanks for any help u guys give me :)

Try rolling back to older drivers.
On the random restarts could be the same issue or PSU is not up to the task.

The internet is telling me that is part of PlayXpert. Do you have that installed?
Other than that graphics related.

When installing your Nvidia drivers, the new installer they use has the option for a clean install. You have to chose custom install I think to get to it. I always chose this option so....but there is a box under the list of things to install that you check and it will wipe out your current installed driver and freshly install the drivers. I have used this once to fix a similar issue on a friends machine and not one BSOD since.
