Hi team

After some great assistance in another forum, I have been directed to this forum for a bit more advice and help. I have been asked to let you know that I have run Hijack This and there are no serious problems there. All, checks have been done. No viuses, malware or other stuff on the PC.

Problem...... I have Sony Vaio with built in TV running XP. If I watch TV or try to watch video online the PC crashes, rebbots with error message

STOP Thread stuck in device Driver 0x000000EA

I am not too technical so will need guidance if i need to find information. But I go get there in the end.

I have tried to re start PC to earler date but it will only go back to 26 Feb 2007.

I would really appreciate help. This site has proved to be fantastic so thank you in advance.

Read this

A device driver problem has caused the system to pause indefinitely (hang). Typically, this is caused by a display driver waiting for the video hardware to enter an idle state. This might indicate a hardware problem with the video adapter, or a faulty video driver.

Try to run drivercleaner

Would that be an Nvidia card? As far as I can remember, the only solution at present is to wait for new drivers or buy another card. Maybe another reader has a solution.
