First of all, check your video drivers. Make sure they are up to date.
Also, what game is it? You can bring up Google and try and search for
problems with the game you have. Chances are if there are issues with it,
others are having problems and there could be discussions online about it.

Check the website for the Vendor of the game. They might have forums with
help.

Hi,
it say somthing about a minidump.

What precisely is that something? Error message? BCCode? Module? Parameters?
can sumone help please

Perhaps, if you can supply the above information. If it simply flashes and
the system reboots, go to the control panel/system/advanced system
properties and on the advanced tab go to startup and recovery settings.
Uncheck the line to automatically restart on system failure. This will stop
the system from rebooting when the blue screen appears so you can write down
the details before restarting the system.

My husband and I play WoW and other mmorpg's. Right now they all have some
kind of issues with vista. But if you go on their tech support forums you
should be able to find ways to fix different problems they are having. We got
all our games to run perfect on Vista after a little tweaking.

Rick tells you how to hold the BSOD error on your screen, but even when you
do I'd google for forums for these to games>go to the forum and search the
error. Also update your video driver if there is an update. The forums are
always the best and most specific help source for these type errors with
games.

An 0x100000EA error is THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER, the device driver got
stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device
itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. It is
clearly a device driver problem. I'm assuming it is the graphics card
driver. For an ATI X1600, make sure you have the Catalyst Vista drivers 7.7,
from 19 July 2007 (or more recent, if any are available). Also mak sure all
your other various device drivers are all up to date.

Hope it helps,
