Sounds like a chipset drivers problem to me, please go here:
I would make sure that your motherboard, video and soundcard drivers are up to date as well.
I haven't actually come across this one in Windows XP so far, but you get it in Windows 2000 as well
So, please let me know how you get on................as the XP variant is new to me it is obviously of interest

hmmm if you've got something in your agp slot, then maybe unplug it, give the slot a little clean, usually some compressed air should do the trick, then re-insert it and see if that helps.
more specs on your computer would be nice.

Personally....I dont think windows is the problem here.
Sounds like bad driver or video card.
Why not try a repair or a nice clean install....
Of course back up your data first

It sound very much like a video card problem to me. Can you try another card (it doesn't have to be anything fancy, an old PCI one will do) and/or get someone to try your card in another machine? If your card has a heatsink and fan, please clean them and check that the fan is working.
Basically I am trying to figure out if it is a video problem or something else

Thanks David, that is an interesting one, as your symptoms are at first sight typical of a card/driver problem.
It sounds as if you have some sort of conflict/clash going on. As these are not expected to happen () you rarely get a very meaningful error message.
This sort of thing can also happen with scheduled and background tasks cutting in. They tend to work to start with but as your machine fills up and you have more stuff running, they don't finish when they used to and can conflict with other stuff.
What make of video card do you have? is it a ATi Radeon?
