C: Your graphics card drivers are corrupt or your MOBO drivers are corrupted. Update them quickly if you can.
where did u get this info?
If you don't know the answer you shouldn't even reply.
Its not a thing to do with power supply,
why would you ever use fdisk to format for xp?
Graphics card has nothing to do with it.
You have the msblaster worm, and or the sasser. You need to do updates behind a firewall to prevent this.
