Default Odd hardware problem (possibly related to overheating)

Over the past two days, my Windows XP box has been giving me the blue screen and this message:

PHP Code:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


... (talks about restarting computer and checking hardware) ...

Technical information:

STOP0x000000D1 (0xF7F044000x000000020x000000000xEE5CDB60)

nvmcp.sys Address EE5CDB60 base at EE572000DateStamp 40b3cf79 

It happens whenever I start doing something strenuous (such as gaming).

It has been extra hot the past few days, which is why I think it might be related to overheating. Also, I tried dusting it all out and putting a fresh coat of thermal grease on the cpu today, and it made it last a lot long without giving the blue screen.

I have tried all I can to cool this computer. I opened it up and there is a big fan blowing air through it. But it still happens.

Any ideas on how to stop this from happening?

Thanks in advance,

I googled a few key words, and most of the top results had to do audio drivers in the nForce chipset. Have a look for yourself, hopefully it helps a bit.

Thanks man. This should fix my problem.

I didn't realize that I haven't tried googling it yet. I'll be more careful in the future before I post.

Thanks again.
