Hi oo0oscar0oo...Welcome to G2G!

Did you follow the work around instructions HERE? Turn the acceleration to zero. If the errors stop, gradually turn it back up to regain performance. When you get the errors again, turn it down slightly and leave it there. In most cases, the loss of performance is barely noticeable.

How far did you turn the acceleration down? Is it down all the way?

Ok...let's try this.

Open Device Manager and navigate to your video card (under Video Adaptors)..right click on it and choose "Uninstall" and Click "Ok". Reboot your machine...You should get the "Found New Hardware Wizard" when you restart...Have it search for the best driver and reinstall itself.

Post back with your results...

Let it run this way for a few minutes and see if your shutdown issue is gone. If your machine seems stable, go ahead and install the updated drivers only.

oo0oscar0oo...

Are you getting this error with only the Windows Default VGA drivers running video or did you install the updated drivers?

Please go to your Device Manager again...in the list, are there any yellow ! or ?...if there are, please list them to this thread.

Go to Windows Update (Start > All Programs > Windows Update) and choose the "Custom" option when you get to the update page. Let Update scan your computer for available updates, then in the left pane choose "Hardware" and download and install any updates found there. Do the same thing for the "Software" updates.

Post back with any changes (ie: the device manager thing)
