If anyone has a suggestion(s) on how to correct the following problem (From Microsoft Online Crash Analysis) I would appreciate it.

Thank You.

Error Caused by Graphics Device Driver

Thank you for submitting an error report. Microsoft is unable to determine what specifically caused the problem you reported. To troubleshoot the problem, please see the information listed below.


A device driver installed on your computer caused the problem. But we cannot determine the precise cause. Depending on which situation is applicable to you, please do one of the following:

If you are running Windows Server 2003 you may experience crashes if you have adjusted the Hardware Acceleration setting. Microsoft recommends that you set the Hardware Acceleration setting to None for server systems. To check your Hardware Acceleration setting, go to the Advanced section of the display properties dialog box.
If you know the manufacturer of the device, contact the manufacturer's product support service for assistance.
If you don't know the driver's manufacturer and need help diagnosing and resolving this problem, contact your computer manufacturer's product support service.
Updated drivers might be available on the Microsoft Windows Update website. At Windows Update, you can have your computer scanned and, if there are updated drivers available, Windows Update will offer a selection of drivers that you might be able to use. To learn more about updated drivers that might be available, visit Microsoft Windows Update.
For information about Microsoft support options, visit Microsoft Product Support Services.

Why 5 posts all about the same thing???????

You have made 5 posts all about the same thing and appears you haven't acknowledged or fully addressed the replies and suggestion made by others on either of these occasions.
I spent a long time writing down everything in this post but with no "thanks" or even a reply or feed back. Instead you make 2 subsequent posts

You are obviously having heat related problems, probably associated with your graphics card, but unless you tell us exactly what hardware you have and all relevant info, including what errors you are having and what you have done to fix the problem you wont get any satisfactory answers - we are looking through a key hole as it is, without you posting "here there and everywhere" without supplying info asked, or giving feed back.

Its your problem and your choice - so I suggest you write a long note telling us everything and then we maybe able to solve your problem.

You need to help us to help you!!!!
