|Hello - I have no idea what caused this error, just that it's scared me badly and would like to know what to do to fix it and prevent it.|
I opened a video file I had just converted to watch. The screen went black, and I could hear the video playing. I finally came back, and the screen was very out of sync - everything was twice as large as usual. I had been pressing ctrl+alt+del, and told it to shut down. I saw a popup that said Display Driver Error, so once it was restarted (and I had closed the report popup) I checked the event viewer.
The information given there said the source was ialm. The report said: The driver iamlmmt5 for the display divice \Device \Video0 got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.
The system report said: Error code 000000ea, parameter1 899e 1020, parameter2 89e0d160, parameter3 89e41b90, parameter4 00000001
The other report said that it would be normal after a reboot.
The program trying to open the video was VLC media player, which had played other videos with no issues earlier today, even a converted video (I had converted an flv to be larger, but still and flv. This video had been converted from flv to mpeg.)
Please, can someone help me? Everything seems normal now, but it was utterly surprising and frightening. I have since restarting tried a converted flv video again, and there was no problem.
