I recently reinstalled XP because I wanted a 'virgin' install to run Norton Ghost on for system restores. Everything was working fine, then I went to install the sound (Soundblaster Live MP3) and video (ATI Radeon 7500) drivers. After that I loaded all the software that I normally use.
I started getting errors like: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, and a few others. I checked what could cause these errors and everything points to a driver problem. I've installed all the newest driver updates from Microsoft, so I should be running the correct drivers. Right now I'm using the VGA Compatable driver for video to see if my problems stop.
What drivers should I use? Do I use the drivers from the manufacturers, or from Microsoft?
I definitely need a working video driver. Scrolling up and down sucks, you get a 'wave' effect. I may try the original CD and see what happens.
