Seems like your video drivers are either corrupted ort out of date see this link

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=325730

Download an updated video card driver for your device, i am presuming the drivers are Nvidia drivers.  Remove the old video drivers first, reboot then install the new driver and then try it :)

Best of luck

leeds2k find out what device you have, if it is an Nvidia driver that is required then download the latest one from the website.  Despite what you may think.  The driver you currently have may have issues with it.  Read the article I posted.  

Then go to http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and install the driver from their site.  I had a similar problem as your explaining a while back and I though Ihad the latest drivers as the update utility I had with my graphics card downloaded the latest one.  It was not until I approached the makers of the card that they told me to download the driver from the Nvidia site and this resolved my problem.

Please try it, it may suprise you :)

You should also check fan on graphics card (if it has one :), they are very unreliable...

Leeds how where and when did you get the latest drivers?

Did you use an auto update util, also you have not said what graphics card you are using.

You did use the proper amount of Artic Silver when you replaced the heat sink?

stop error 0x00000024

CAUSE
This issue can occur if a problem occurred within the Ntfs.sys file. The Ntfs.sys file is the driver file that enables your computer to read and write to NTFS partitions. Damage in the NTFS file system, damaged portions of your hard disk, or damaged SCSI or IDE drivers can also cause this issue.

so check your hard disk

pjcrooks2000Commented:
Yes the video card is the only thing that can be causing the problem, i suppose it could be overheating too.  

Main problems affecting vid cards

Overheating (Could be due to dust of faulty fan)
Defective card (replace card)
Corrupt drivers (Need removing and reinstalling)

Obvioulsy :)

Not a problem, actually you can give more than one points.  You can split the points normally, just above where add comments you can click on split points.  Remember that for next time hey!

You could go to the support forum and have the question re opened to adjust points, but I am not that bothered as long as you got the problem sorted out.

cheers
