My computer has been freezing (with the error "A parity error was detected on \Device\RaidPort0." repeated multitudes of times in the system log) vaguely every 5-10 minutes while in any fullscreen application or 3d game.
This started shortly after a windows update for my motherboard's drivers (NVIDIA 8200). I've tried rolling back the drivers, installing a new copy of the ACPI driver, and playing with my BIOS- nothing's changed
video games are unplayable, autocad unusable, etc. :huh:
All help is appreciated!


EDIT: fixed the number- accidently wrote 9200

Have you tried deleting the drivers and restarting the system??? That would be my first approach in fixing the problem.

I thought of that but didn't know if you could safely delete ACPI drivers

EDIT:can I?

No disabling, uninstalling, or deleting the ACPI driver... (which I think is to blame for the freezing)
