    Check to make sure all of your drivers are up to date.
    You can do this through windows update on their webpage, and find the drivers update. If that doesn't help find out what kind of graphics card or chip you are using and go to the manufacturer website and get the latest drivers there.

    Finally try finding out what motherboard you are using and try updating the driver on that. And the CPU.

    I looked around and this error seems to happen when playing games. Although no one could pin point the error. It seems to be related to a driver, I just couldn't find any threads that specified which one it occurred in.
