Default strange vid problem, strange error

first off, sorry for such a long story but i felt that to
much info is better than to little. ;-)

hey all, need some help here. i was out of town for about
a week and my comp was off and unplugged for that time.
when i returned home everything was in normal working
order while working on the comp that evening, but in the
morning things went horribly wrong. anything video
related made strange multi-colored lines appear
horizontally on the screen in random groupings. when i
say anything video related, i mean full screen or
windowed, movies (no matter what vid player used), action
games (Battlefield 1942, Soldier of Fortune 2), other
games (Kyodai Mahjong), and even any web pages with video
in them. everything would be working normal and then as
soon as anything video happened the multi-colored
horizontal lines would appear and then disappear when the
video was shut off. the comp was in normal working order
before, during, and after the video, with the obvious
exception of the weird lines.

after this started happening, i ran all Norton Systemworks
stuff (virus scan with new updates, disc doctor, win
doctor, etc) as well as Ad-Aware 6 professional (fully
updated) and Spybot S&D (fully updated and immunized). i
looked around in DXDIAG and ran the tests and found that 2
of the video tests were not correct. i uninstalled my old
NVIDIA drivers and then installed the newest version
(56.64) which fixed the strange multi-colored lines
appearing during anything video, and fixed (apparently)
all problems with SoF 2 and Kyodai. however, Battlefield
1942 was still not working correctly. i decided to
uninstall the newest drivers and install the next earlier
version (53.04) but still had the same problem. i then
tried another version (45.23) with similar results,
everything appeared normal except for Battlefield. i also
tried installing my original drivers that were working
perfect for months before this started, but that made the
strange lines come back again during video. i then tried
the next driver version back (44.03) and it was around
this point that i ran into my first blue-screen error
message of this whole episode (which ive only seen 3 or 4
times total now).

Windows
An exception 06 has occurred at 0028:C0013803 in VxD VMM
(01)+
00012803. This was called from 0028:C023F58B in VxD VMM
(0C)+
0000058B. It may be possible to continue normally.
Press any key to return or Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.

bottom line, everything works normal now after the
uninstall/install of the various newer NVIDIA drivers
except for the video problems with BF. hopefully someone
can shed some light on a possible fix for this problem.
the following is a .jpg of screenshots showing what BF
looks like when the problem happens (sometimes i can play
for a while normally before the vid problem happens).
*note - i just realized that when the vid problem happens
if i change the resolution of BF the problem temporarily
goes away.

As you have a hardware problem unrelated to WinME OS, you may get more help
posting on a Newsgroup specifically for users of NVidia based video cards.
Try he alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia
Unfortunately, from the symptoms you describe, your video card may be dying,
possibly bad RAM.

A quick test would be to start Windows in SafeMode. If things look fine
there, then Remove all instances of any Display Adapter in
ControlPanel/System/DeviceManager(view by type) and Monitors as long as
you're in the area. If your Display Adapter has an Uninstall feature,
use that.

Reboot and then reinstall your Graphics Card.


If Safe Mode is bad then try in DOS from a floppy disk boot to see what
it looks like.

If that's bad, consider RMAing your videocard.
