im using XP home edition . I have all the updates and latest drivers . My computer runs fine except when playing one game called EVE online . I know its a problem with the game and not my computer as many people playing the game have the same problem . I dont think i can solve the problem , i think ill have to rely on the people who make the game doing that . What i want to know is if getting this error and just switching of my computer will do it harm in the long run , if not im happy to put up with it , otherwise i will stop playing the game . My error message - If i play the game and shutdown windows its ok , but if i play the game and then use any other program or game i get the error when i shutdown my computer . I get the blue screen of death after it say saving settings and then shutting down computer. Driver-IRQL - NOT- LESS - OR - EQUAL tech info - xxxstop:0x000000D1/0x0000000/0x000000Z, 0x00000000,0xE1EA5835 . like i say im not expecting to be able to stop the problem , just wondering if the computer not shutting down at its final stage will do any damage to my computer . thanks for any advice.
