SYMPTOMS
You may receive one of the following Stop error messages:
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.
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 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.

Go to http://support.micro...b;EN-US;q293078 for the full page on your problem, Im gonna repost if i find an actual nvidia issue pertaining to this. Read that page and the "WORK AROUND" since you already tried the resolution.

The only impression I got from nvidia was they think this error is usually caused by you not having your mobo chipset drivers updated! Its like ping pong with these assh@les, they just blame each other for a continuous loop. lol. Well I think you better uninstall your mobo driver (once you have dled the new one) and then uninstall your graphics card driver. Then install your new mobo driver and afterwards install your most recent nvidia driver. Also, are you able to play other games that us direct3d or directdraw or opengl???
