what is the vga card that u are using
try to download the latest driver and install

Commented:
This is an error in one of your DEVICE drivers.  It's quite possible it's your VIDEO DRIVER but it could be something else as well.

1) Did this just start recently?  If so, did you recently install or update anything?  If so, try uninstalling that new thing.

2) Does this happen with ALL games or only some?  If some or one, perhaps your system doesn't meet the requirements for the game(s) in question.

3) Is your COOLING working properly?  High-temp. problems can manifest themselves in many ways.

1) It keeping doing this about 2-3 weeks. I only updates software during this time. VGA and soundcard (SBLive Value).

2) Usually after this new Splinter Cell demo and sometimes after Morrowind and NOLF2.

3) Cooling is OK

My PC is: AMD1900+, DDR512, GF4Ti4200, Samsung 60Gb... I got this machine about 5 weeks ago. SP3 is been there from the beginning.

PS. Sorry my english i'm from Finland.
Try downloading the latest direct x from microsoft, see if that fixes it:
