I suppose its back to basics

1) try a system restore to before the problem started
2) try uninstalling any new programs and reinstalling
3) same for hardware

Try this, go to run and type msconfig. on the static VXD you need to work through to find out which is the problem. You can untick half first, restart and see if problem dissapears. If not restore and untick other half. when you find problem post back.
You can untick all for test purposes your computor will still run

It is likely that the problem is associated with your mainboard drivers, try restoring or preferable see if the drivers have been upgraded.
