this is a bit extreme......but i had an issue like that. i run an NVIDIA chipset in my PC boxes and booting gave the the BOD erroring in the same manner.

i use image software alot so my first thought was to change the card. that fixed my issue. Usually that is not the case and remove and reinstall of the driver fixes the issue. you may need updated drivers.

you can try to go to MSCONFIG. maybe you can disable the software from loading. that may allow you to do the r&r of the software.

click start, run, type MSCONFIG. choose selective startup and then the startup tab at the top. check out the list and see if you show the NVIDIA control panel there. uncheck it, apply, OK and restart. that should at least get you going til you can get new software or......if necessary, new hardware.
