The problem with my licensing is that I got the OS free from school through a MSDN alliance. So I only get so many installs and its supposed to not work anymore. Its a bit of a joke but its a free OS. Hopefully it will hold me over until windows 7.
I'll get those dump files uploaded as soon as I get home from work. I went ahead and ordered a new HDD since it was a plan to eventually upgrade. I also ordered another set of ram sticks. If nothing else it will give me a full 8G. I've got an old geforce 7600 I can try in it and an alternate power supply as well. I'm just really hoping I can fix it before I've bought another computer.
I got the HDDlife program and it sees the HDD name and the little moniter window will show activity but it says its not supported and can't be reached.
Heres a minidump file.

Thanks again for your help
I switched out the HDD and did a fresh install. It did it to me twice last night. I double checked my temps and they all seem fine. I'm not sure whats going on now so I'm guessing its a program/driver issue since it happens in the same game. If this is the case guess theirs nothing to do but wait till they fix it.
