Default Display Driver Problem-Computer Restarts-Fatal Error

Windows Display Driver error.

ialmrnts Display Driver error.

The system has recovered from a serious error.

Error Signiture:
BCCode : 1000008e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : BFAC714B BCP3 : EDA7099C
BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1



System:

Compaq Presario
S5200NX
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Intel Celeron processor 2.7GHz
1024MB DDR RAM Memory
Intel® 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller 64MB
Direct X Version 9.0 c
Latest Drivers from Intel
Latest Drivers from Compaq
Latest Chipset Drivers
Latest Downloads from Microsoft Update
Latest BIOS update
Microsoft Service Pack 2
New Heat Sink and Processor Fan – (Old one wasn’t working)

Current Situation: In my BIOS the system registers my CPU fan as 0 rpm in red lettering. My average CPU temperature is around 44c/111f. I used to get a hardware error message on restart. I had to tell my BIOS to ignore the CPU fan to not get the hardware error on restart. When I try to play Guild Wars I cannot play longer than around 10 minutes before the computer either does one of two things. It either restarts completely with the screen saying afterwards your computer has recovered from a serious error. OR it shows a screen saying Display Driver Error restart computer to recover and then freezes. I have to hit the power button to restart. I have tried everything from updating every driver I could find or think of to updating the Windows XP and BIOS. I’m at a loss on how to fix this one. Thanks for your help.

did you use windows update to update the graphics driver or did you search for the correct driver? you're sure the fan isn't spinning slow?

I searched for the driver update on both Intel and Compaq. I downloaded the correct driver (the same one) from both sites. I also downloaded all the latest upgrades from Microsoft. I don't know if the fan is spinning slow or not. I do know that it is 1. Brand New 2. Installed Correctly and 3. The Correct Fan for the computer.

open the case and have a look at the fan.
