Windows 7: Video card associated BSOD?

Video card associated BSOD?

So a while back I gave my sister my sister my old laptop when I got a new one, and it started to blue screen on her, seemingly at random. I would venture to say its whenever they watch a movie or video, but thats what they use the laptop for mostly, so I can't say thats what is causing the problem. I looked at the .dmp file with BlueScreenView, and it seems that 3 different things may be the problem, but I dont know where to go from there. Any help would be appreciated.

Specs:
Asus G60Vx, purchased around May of 2010.
Windows 7 x64, with 4.00GB RAM
OEM version of Windows 7, but reinstalled in an attempt to correct the problems.
Nvidia 260M with 1 GB memory

Attached is the blue screen report and the actual dump file from a crash that happened yesterday.

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help

My computer is pretty old but I'm hoping to get some help with my problem.
specs:
Dell Dimension 4550
Windows 7 Ultimate(I only have service pack 1 so far)
processor-Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53GHz 2.52 GHz
RAM-1.00 GB
System type-32-bit Operating System
Graphics card-Nvidia GeForce2 MX 100/200 AGP

Okay so when ever I play a game that requires Direct 9.0 or higher my computer crashes and I get the BSOD and when the computer restarts it says that my graphics card does not support Direct x 9.0 I looked up the card on the internet and found out that it does in fact support Direct x 9.0 can somebody help me?
