Greetings everyone :) 
I am on week 3 trying find out what my problem is, and why I keep getting the following error while using ANY of my large applications i.e games etc. After a certain time I will get a windows error message saying:

"this application has encounter a critical error.
FATAL ERROR!
Exception: 0xc000005 (ACESS VIOLATION) at 001B:6f07e945
001B:0d5b0339
The instruction at '0x6f07e945' referenced memory at '0x0000000c'
'0x00000687'
The memory could not be read"

Thereafter the application has been shutdown and I'm back on my desktop. When I'm not so lucky enough to get the error with this happens, the PC will just simply completely reboot out of no where right in the middle of what ever I was doing.

System specs:
WIN XP HOME
Compaq
850MHz PIII
40G
256 SD RAM
on board graphics IntelR 82810E Graphics Controller (Disabled in profile)
NVidida e-TNT 2 M64 32MB PCI Version ( Active graphics card) current drivers

I have fresh HD, Fresh installation of windows xp, completely updated with windows update.
I am loat atm, so any help or direction you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

G'Day 'Ginsain',

I can understand errors with games - Microsoft Flight
Simulator runs quite nicely, but Microsoft Midtown
Madness 2 crashes (on my PC).

I like nVIDIA - but there are still a number of driver issues.

256MB RAM seems a bit 'light' for Games etc - 512 MB
seems more likely.

Download and run the Microsoft Windows Memory Diagnostic:
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
this will eliminate bad memory issues.

The real issue may be with what happens with "serious:
applications.

Make "Test COPIES" of large files.

BOOT TO SAFE MODE (Max available memory):
What happens with:
Word Try spell-checking a long document
Excel Try a lengthy re-calculation
etc. etc.
Test each App on its own.

REPEAT AFTER NORMAL REBOOT.

REPEAT with MANY APPs loaded and minimised.

If things are BEST in Safe Mode/Individual,
WORSE after REBOOT to normal AND
TERRIBLE with a heavily loaded system -
More Memory may be the answer.
