Blue Screen of death. HALP! - January 11th 2009, 01:04 PM

So, I keep getting the message:
"A Problem has occurred with ialmdev5.dll. This could be caused by new software you have installed."

I updated to service pack 3(I know, a bit late). Reinstalled graphics drivers, and tried to download the Intel driver for my chipset, but it did not work. Gave me the error:
"The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer."

Blarg! I dunno what to do next. This only happens when I try to play the game Star Wars Galaxies, I'd really like to play the game after the freaking five hour download I had to wait for it. Useful computer specs below. If you don't know how to help but you know a computer site/forum, please feel free to point me towards it.

Peas and Tanks!
