    you should have plenty of RAM for just about any modern games (even the Crysis, bloated as it is, uses only about 1.3GB). I believe this is a driver level error. Have you got any driver OCing enabled? and what version of the FW drivers are you using??

    Make sure you've got the latest ForceWare drivers for XP

    Thanks Lsdmeasap...Have tried just about every suggestion I could find for solving this problem. It has started occuring again with several games. Checked the video card clock performance with Rivatuner and everything was stable. Have done numerous other attempted fixes, too many to mention, with nothing working. Very frustrated. The only other suggestion I have not tried yet is to reduce the shader clock settings more toward a standard 9800gtx rather than my gtx+. Also, ordered two more gb of ram, just to beef up the system a little. Thanks for all the help. The nVidia forums sucked...no one trying to help. Since some games still work fine, I suspect a driver problem still. Oh well, must be patient for newer drivers. Hope that works. Thanks all for the assistance.

    Ya, it is probably just drivers, especially since some games are fine

    I think I have it beat. I saw that I was still getting Nvr0flashdev errors, even though I had uninstalled that device. So, I checked the Registry, and, sure enough, the Nvr0flashdev still had two references. After deleting those, everything appears to be working fine, including Medieval Total War 2, which had not worked at all up until that point. So, for anyone else out there with a similar problem, check your Registry thoroughly. Thanks for all the help everyone. I am gaming with joy...
