I had a problem while playing eve. The game froze, the screen changed of colour to purple, blue and green, then a windows blue screen appeared and the display was all messed up, like if the blue screen was reproduced a hundred of times but was each time shifted on the right from 1 centimeter. Then the computer booted, but the display was still messed up even during the bios. All I can say is that windows still works (I hear the music when it boots). I can see that windows warns that a DLL couldn't launch properly but I could see which one (the screen is shifted up and left, flatened and is such a low resolution that one can't make out anything).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Your analysis is right. Eve put my graphic card to its knee. From what I was able to read windows disabled the card because of its malfunctioning. It was a 8600GT with 256mo of ddr3.

It's a shame it happens just when I activate my account.
