    XP regularly gives me the blue screen of death, meaning that I have to restart and loose whatever I was doing at that time.

    The error message is as below

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    ....

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x00000000

    0xFD7AFFBE,0x00000000,0xBF873D4B,0x00000000

    ** win32k.sys - Address BF873D4B base at BF80000, Datestamp 3F73195D

    This is beginning to be a really annoying problem, so does anybody know how I could resolve this to the problem or avoid seeing it?

    well first of all you need to do a full antivirus scan and adware/spyware scan

    I had the same problem when I first got my computer, It had PC-cillin anti-virus installed and at start up I would get a blue screen error. I uninstalled it and it stopped. When did the problem start, do you remeber installing something recently that maybe causing the problem?

    probably related to drivers, temps or ram.

    first try updating chipset, sound and video drivers.

    next if it still happens check what your temps are in bios or with a program like speedfan or motherboardmonitor 5.

    this is going to sound daft but whenever i get blue screens i know my heatsink needs vacuuming. yes! vacuuming, so all i do is pull of the fan on the heatsink, use the vac and suck all the dusk out.
    after this everything work fine.

    Thats because the dust is imparing the cooling effectivness of the heatsink causing the processor to overheat causing system locks/crashes, so when you hoover it out the temps drop down to normal levels.

    Worth a go if you've tried all else.
