My Windows XP SP3 goes into blue screen for a second or two, then immediately restarts. This happens once every two weeks. The following is taken from Event Viewer:

Error code 10000050, parameter1 d08ec033, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 805446b2, parameter4 00000000.

My dump files from Minidump folder were created on November 8, 19, and 30. I've attached the latest dump file.

My computer specs are:
AMD 2800 Athlon 64
1gb DDR400 ram
160gb maxtor hard drive
Geforce Nvidia 7600GS 512mb AGP
Samsung DVD Rewriter

Can anyone help? Is it safe to upload the dump files here?

Yes it is safe to upload the minidump files.
Look in c:\windows\minidump
ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

Right-click the minidump file, select Send To.
Then select Compressed (zipped) Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

wow thanks for your research. my computer currently has one LAN built in the motherboard but I don't use, and one USB WiFi adapter. I'll try to update the WiFi driver, then observe for a few days.

according to the website of the manufacturer of my USB WiFi Adapter (Edimax), my product has been phased out, and the driver is not newer than what I currently have. Would updating my NDIS driver to 6 or 7 help? XP can support version 5 according to Wikipedia. What other options can I do?

NDIS.sys is usually caused by the driver error for the installed LAN Card.

Download BlueScreenView
And see what that may reveal.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

Download link at the bottom of the page.
Download>and post the last 4 minidump from the scan.
Once it has scanned>Edit>Select All>File>Save Selected Item
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad>Copy>Paste Entry.

Double click on the drivers to display a table showing the various properties of the error.
Under File Description

I downloaded the bluescreenview program but haven't tried it yet. you mentioned that the error is caused by the driver of the lan card, so i updated this first. I'll observe my pc in two weeks. hopefully no BSOD will appear so I can mark this topic solved. Thanks for your suggestion!
