I just started getting this error for some reason. My system has been
unchanged and working fine for maybe a little less than a year. All of
a sudden it started freezing on playback with this error. X ends up
taking 100% of the CPU. I also read that page and followed the
suggestions and it didn't fix anything. I didn't really expect it to
since its been working fine for months. Could my nvidia card be worn
out? Does anyone have any suggestions?
