Default My 9800XT, error THread_Stuck_in_device

My 9800XT I dont feel ever has run quite right, I have the newest drivers always (currently 5.1 Cat), and have obviously used the old ones as well. It just froze and restarted while playing Prince of Persia Demo. It has various errors, used to be VPU recover, but not for awhile. I barely play games at all anymore. this sucks! I accidentally sent the "send MS the error report" thing, and this is what it gave me.

do like it says bout clearing the Enable Write Combining check box, also really examine the agp socket for any dust/debris/obstructions. Do have your FSB in Bios oc'd?

Nothing OC'd on my entire comp, my AGP slot little screw in the metal thing got stripped, so it isnt very tight, so I will admit the card sags a tiny bit. This sound like what may be wrong?

Also it said something about decreasing my performance options if I follow those instructions, True?

Hey Jak, sorry to bump this but do you think it slightly hanging could make it mess up a lot?
