    have just finished a new build and everything is going fine except for these two BSOD's that seem to occur pretty much randomly... i have a hunch that its my video cards, nvidia 8500 (x2) with the most updated drivers. I'm running xp pro sp2 with two monitors, one connected to each video card (vga). the 2 BSOD's are "BAD_POOL_HEADER" and "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". after the last couple of BSOD'd i have also noticed that whenever i restart my left (main) monitor drops two the lowest resolution and both drop to the lowest colour settings AND for some strange reason my taskbar is moved to the right hand monitor. both video cards are brand new.

    and another "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL", basically im at the point that i cant do anything, i cant access safe mode or any other mode, cant get into bios, cant really do anything since my keybard suddenly stopped working unless plugged in as usb, and so cant be used durin boot, i guess it would probably work from a boot disk.. also had one BSOD that looked exactly like the others except that it didnt have any large phrase with underscores, must be a generic error :p

    the board has no onboard vga so it would be very hard to tell if that was the problem :p
