What's this error?

Here is the error message.

Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078)

STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER
STOP: 0x100000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER_M

CAUSE
This issue may occur if the display driver is caught in an infinite loop while it waits for the video hardware to become idle. This issue typically indicates a problem with the video hardware or that the display driver cannot program the hardware correctly.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, obtain and install the most current driver for your video adapter, or replace your video card.
i would recomend this first, then the workaround if you still have problems

WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
2. On the Settings tab, click Advanced, and then click the Troubleshoot tab.
3. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to None, and then click to clear the Enable Write Combining check box.
4. Click OK, and then click OK.

Note This procedure prevents the display driver from programming the hardware incorrectly, but you may lose some display functionality and performance. Although you can increase the hardware acceleration settings higher than None to regain functionality and performance, these settings increase the chance that the issue will occur again. For maximum stability, leave hardware acceleration off.

I already installed the new drivers and I really wouldn't like replacing my 200 dollar vid card.

That doesn't let me play the game that's causing the problem.

I could never be on a Help Desk.

Did you read the workaround? Have you tried posting on a board that cater's to your card? ATI/NVIDIA or more of a tech forum. Could you provide more information on what EXACTLY is happening and when...and your hardware specifications?

Take care,

AMD 2200+
1g ram corsair
nVidia XT 5900 128mb
Envy24 Family Audio(WDM) - whatever sound card that is....

It happens when I play World of Warcraft. It does it after I play for like 5 minutes. Game freezes up and locks up the computer, can't alt tab, ctrl alt delete or anything. Just have to turn the machine off. Now that I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled, the machine freezes right when I run the game. It's only that game, I can do anything else, just not that game.

Are you using the latest and greatest drivers? Also, if all else fails try these...

http://www.omegadrivers.net/ati/win2k_xp.php

I personally run nothing but those drivers. However run it at your own risk since they are not official drivers...technically. They've always done good by me though.

Do you play any other intensive games or just this game that would tax the card? Also, do you have WoW fully patched?

1.9.2 patch is installed. I have the latest drivers, I'll try those, won't hurt me any. WoW is the only game that taxes my machine.

sounds like the card is overheating... Plenty of cooling in the machine?

It is an AMD processor, meaning the case is probably pretty toasty inside. I'd also make sure your power supply can handle the card, all the drives and cooling fans. I'm guessing you'd need at least a 350 watt supply.

could be...also some games REQUIRE a 256 meg card, like battlefield 2, they require a 256 to run, otherwise the game will shutdown and cause an error.

huh...I tear up some BF2 with a 128.

I was thinking heat too...if WoW is the only thing taxing the machine...heat might be it. Get one of the 3DMark apps and run it for awhile. If it crashes on that, it is heat.

Did you install your ram in slot 0/1 or did you serperate them, like put them in slot 0/2. I did that, and it had the same effect you are talking about.

Wow, that's someting to keep in mind. Out of curiousity, were you able to verify 0/2 was good? Just curious if it is an actual bad slot or if placement was the main issue.

Take care,

Oh well, I'm getting another computer anyways. 2.8 dual core pentium, 2g ram, nvidia 256mb 7800gtx

The vid card was overheating, fan went kaput on the card.
