Probably a hardware issue with your video card. You might try a newer driver version. If you have another video card that you can borrow, I would try that. In addition, you can also turn down graphic acceleration/bit size/resolution to see if you get the error message.
These types of problems are usually associated with shared IRQs. Therefore, I would check for devices that share an IRQ with your video card. If it is hardware on the PCI bus, then I would try moving that device to another PCI slot (farther from original is best).
You should know that it is definitely a hardware problem and may be a result of defective hardware. I would say that I am pretty sure that it is a conflict with your video card but may also be a problem with your BIOS or communication with your BIOS. If this is the case, you could try switching your computer from 'ACPI' to 'Standard PC' HAL in the Device Manager. Of course you will loose your ability to automatically shut down your computer and put it in Sleep or Hibernate mode.
Keep troubleshooting. Reloading your OS will not help. Don't consider the BIOS as a problem until you have exhausted every other possiblity.
