I left m laptop on but closed and when I opened it was restarting and upon getting into windows it said Error Message: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER (Q293078).
Windows Error Reporting advised me to update my video driver and when I went to device manager and update driver it said the driver I have is the best match.
So basically my computer is sending me mixed messages. Do I look for a new driver or was this a fluke and should I leave it alone? Also, why is there any error if all I did was open the laptop?
I don't know if it matters but the video card is an ati radeon x1250.

Here is a link to the latest ATI drivers for your graphics card: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst...p/integrated-xp

Please use this link ( http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default...uestionID=20870 ) to uninstall your video drivers BEFORE installing the new one's. Chances are that there is a corruption in the current drivers and this is what's causing the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

Video drivers are closely tied to the Sleep and Hibernate modes - and many programs will mess with your video in order to display things that they want displayed. It's a fairly common issue and nothing to be alarmed about.

I would use a Driver Cleaner to make sure the driver is off my system and resinstal a new one, even if it's the same version or file. Make sure you get the new driver before you uninstall the previous, to make sure you have no issues booting it up without a vid Driver.


According to Microsoft.com, your issue occured because

This issue might occur if the graphics adapter 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 graphics adapter cannot program the hardware correctly.


So it could be a one event thing or a thing that will occure all the time. I would resinstall the driver as I stated above.
