    Error 0xEA

    Driver cited was ati2mtag.sys which is an ATI driver

    The minidump also specifically said GRAPHICS_DRIVER_FAULT

    If you think the following might work for you...

    1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro (free version) to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro. If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.
