If you are asking what a GPF is, that means an application (like office or a game) has crashed.
Is this a onetime occurance or does it happen all the time?
I personally don't see how you make it with 256 of ram. You are running xp on a 2.4G processor. Buy some ram.
Get it all the time. But here are the specifics.
It's a game that I have, America's Army. It happens when I play online, but only after I die and I start switching between guys that are still living. And it doesn't happen all the time, in fact I went about four rounds before this happened. But it only happens when I'm looking at other viewpoints.
Windows video sub-system puked when your game tossed a bunch of crap at it that didn't make sence. Since this error was generated from the game it's also likely that it could be a result of an application developer being high on crack while he was coding. Check the games website [ America's Army ] for a FAQ or troubleshooting section to see if anyone else has had any similar problems. America's Army doesn't have a stellar reputation when it comes to performance or compatability.
If you havent updated your video card drivers, you could try that. Just go to the manufactures website and look for the latest version. While you are there look for troubleshooting section that might have some more info for you.
I'm not convinced that it is a Windows problem but trying different drivers (even older ones) will sometimes get you around some issues.
Here are some links:

It basically means, the cheapie imbedded video card your using can't handle the game your playing. Buy yourself a decent aftermarket ATI or Nvidia card and not only will your games run better (and faster) but your system will get a small speed boost as well. (doesn't have to share main memory with the rest of the system).
The imbedded video chipsets are not really meant for games, only as a way for system builders to save money. They are good for email/word processing/internet etc... but not much else.
