Make sure your video card (and all cards, ram & cpu) are seated securely.

Is this after you install Nvidia drivers? If so don't use Nvidia drivers just use the Windows drivers or possibly a different version of Nvidia drivers.

Is your ram two pieces of 128 if so try each one alone in slot one or borrow a piece of ram.

Are you installing your mainboard drivers from a CD that should have came with the board?

With some graphics cards it is neccessary to play musical drivers.

What is this game you say well it goes like this:

First let Windows install its own drivers if it wishes and see how this works. I like to run a couple 3D mark 2001 SE tests to see if things are stable.

Then try the drivers from the Video card CD.
Also manufactures like Nvidia will have many archived drivers you can try.

Sometimes left over reminants from previous video cards cause problems often leading to a clean install of Windows to correct it.
