Because I know you care.

So it appears that my computer isn't getting on very well.
A quick analysis of the memory dump files (blue screen of death) indicates an old nVidia driver was causing the problem.
Jumped back into safe mode, removed the driver, restarted and back to square one.

I've yet to scrape all the nvidia files off the HDD just yet (it's the next task) but it seems the video card might also be on it's last legs.

Yay.

Running a 8800GT which is about 6 months younger than the whole computer. Anyway I've found the file which was causing problems and removed it, just need to see if the new drivers work now...

The computer is about due to be replaced in January (5 years), but you know, money.

Anyway, turns out it's a specific problem with the drivers not playing ball with a file in some drivers from 2007.

Wow, I had two ancient 8800GT's when my computer was in its first phase. That is some old techonology!

Also turns out that playing BF3 fried my 8800GT. Great success!
