I installed eve onto an usb flash drive and got it to run on the asus eee slate ep121. i love playing eve on a slate/tablet, however, there does seem to be one problem. The graphics card restarts every time i leave a station or gate jump. Windows7 auto restarts it and im back to playing eve, so it really only adds a few extra seconds of black screen after a gate jump. Not a huge problem, but sorta annoying. Has anyone figured out how to fix this? It may be a memory problem or eve doesn't like the graphics card, but i'm hoping for a workaround.

Computer Specs: ASUS EEE Slate ep121
Dual Intel Core i5 i5-470UM / 1.33 GHz
32GB Flash memory
Dedicated Video memory 64 megs
Total available graphics memory 758 megs
Windows 7 64-bit SP1
DirectX 11

EVE SETTINGS: Optimized for memory, performance, quality all have the same error and turning everything to low/off still gives the error.

Event Viewer Error Message:
Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Tray Icon Popup Error Message:
Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 7(R) stopped responding and has succesfully recovered.

I have seen many posts about this topic for many different games. After awhile of try/fail with things people have posted, I started trying to install any intel graphics driver to see if it would work. It ended up that one of them did work for me, but only with certain settings. I don't think this will work for anyone not using an asus eee slate ep121, but this is what I am using now.

1. Go to intel downloads and grab the "Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family"

Graphics->Laptop Graphics Controllers->Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family
The Version I got was

2. Install it, even if it says you are running a newer version.

3. Right click the desktop and goto graphic properties, then go to the 3D tab, checkbox the custom settings and set

Texture Quality -> Performance
Anisotropic Filtering -> 2x
Vertex Processing -> Enable Software Processing
Vertical Sync -> ON

4. Next you will probably want to turn off/low all the graphic settings in eve online for a test run and restart the application. You can then turn them back on depending on how much graphics lag you are seeing. I personally just leave them all turned off/low.

The driver that I was using (the one that didn't work) was "Intel HD Graphics V8.15.10.2361" This is what windows 7 installed for me when I got the computer.

I would not recommend trying to install random video drivers like I did because you can get yourself into trouble, but this is what I did. I can now start eve online, undock, and gatejump without that darn error or having to disable the service that produces the error bubble.
