I'm a guy who loves a good MMO. WoW has been my poison for three years, but recently I wanted to get into a more sci-fi genre kind of game, so I grabbed the 14-day free trial of EVE Online for a little space-based shoot 'em up action. Everything was running smooth and beautiful, and then-
My screen just turns itself off. Eventually the CPU restarts on its own, but still the screen won't come back on until I manually restart the thing myself. After this happened enough times, I finally wrung it out of my errant electronics that the culprit was a Stop Error that said I had a "Thread Stuck In Device Driver". After doing a little digging, I found this meant in English that there's a problem with a video card driver. While its helpful to at least know what is breaking, I've been unable to formulate a way to keep it from breaking.
This error occurs at random times. Sometimes I can get 10-40 minutes out of the game, other times, less than three.
