    Whenever i attempt to use my video driver in more then a standard way (viewing a video, playing a game like warcraft 3) the computer flickers and restarts. I turned off restart at system failure, and the error message was stop 0x00000050 or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. The associated dll file causing the corruption is sisgrv.dll, which i believe is my video driver. I tried to reinstall the video driver of mobo manufacturer website, but it did not help at all. The processor is an amd athlon xp 2800+, 1 gig of ram, asrock k7s41. I bought the computer several months ago and it had been working find up until now. I ran a pc doctor thing (pc mighty max, the demo version) and it gave me some errors, the only severe one is that theres a corrupt start up file in the system32 folder (dumprep 0 or something to that effect). You have to pay to have it repair the problem, so i havent done that yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If the problem is limited to a dll file in the system32 folder, you can enter your windows disk, boot from it and go into the recovery console.
    Do a copy of the file from the disk and write over ther corrupt file, this should fix that much of the problem.
