I believe OD and OE errors are related to your video card, if I'm not mistaken.

Have you installed a new video card or any other new hardware lately?

Are you able to narrow the problem down any?  "Every so often" leaves a lot of room for what might be the problem.

One thing you might try is leaving the computer on overnight.  In the morning, see if the message has appeared.

Good luck,

It wasn't the video card,But I removed some Simms modules and the problem went away. I think it had defective RAM.
