That is a driver or hardware error of your graphic card. Try taking the graphic card out, and putting back in. To make sure it has a snug connection.

Does it have the latest drivers?

You need to press the little tab that the card is secured with, and pull at a straight angle. This PCI-e?

How new are your drivers?

It might be worth it to drop back a version. While the cards a decent card, its far from new.
WhaT seems to be happening is its getting buggered switchig from 2d to 3d clock speeds.

Yes this is a PCI-e, and I believe it is the drivers because I just downloaded a new update they put out there earlier and nothing has happened yet, BUT i still get this blue glitch look on my bar at the bottom (where start menu and time is) for a moment which means i still think there is something wrong. This is what it looks like. This picture was taken along time ago when this problem was ALOT worse but it still seems to have never fully gone away.

Dang it is now BSOD stop erroring more often since the new update. I am thinking about uninstalling my driver and using driver sweeper to delete every file of it and starting off new with a new updating driver or one from a while ago. I have a couple questions about it though.

-Every time i uninstall my driver is automatically installs it back in after i restart my computer, i turned off the driver signing and windows updates, why does it do this, and do you have any specific steps or tips that you want me to know when getting rid of a driver and getting a new one?

-If it is a windows issue, do you know a program or something that may help me out on fixing this? I ran Combofix last night, i don't know if that was to help out or not but it didn't unfortunatley =/

Hey I am now positive it is the graphics driver, but thanks mak for showing me that it may come in handy in the future. Anyways I uninstalled the driver and deleted every file that was left which was very difficult because i have to go into safe mode around 5 or 6 times to delete these files, I used fileassassin tool on AntiMalwarebytes a few times to help. When I uninstalled it, it ran on the defualt display or whatever you call it originally by windows. Usually the BSOD pops up when i'm on a game or im searching through the internet with another program running. But it always 100% happens when i click the text screen in Sony Vegas, so while i was in default display i clicked the text screen and it worked without no problems.

So now i am going to download a new version of the driver and if it doesn't work then ill try to repair windows. I think it was because I remember someone saying "There is no updating drivers, there is only uninstalling and installing drivers" which came in handy because I may have in the past downloaded a driver without uninstalling an old one. Which would of course mess things up for me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well me installing that driver never worked at all. So I repaired Windows XP doing the method mak showed me and installed the updates back. Nothing has really changed. Unfortunately for me the ATI AMD website do not offer driver downloads from previous dates, only the new ones from what i have seen and looked for. So I will try to install using the CD-ROM I got with the computer for my graphics driver. Also I may try and check if the chord on the device is snuggled in good as well. I just don't understand it though, why would it do this to me. Any more ideas? I think Microsoft Framework may have something to do with this, but honestly not sure.
