    The Desktop Window Manager has encountered a fatal error (0x8898008d)

      Hi, I have an Atom-powered ASUS T100 tablet, all drivers and BIOS up to date. My problem is that every now and then when I'm browsing the Internet using IE I am suddenly logged off! I can see an entry in System Events that says "The Desktop Window Manager has encountered a fatal error (0x8898008d)". My best guess is that graphics driver is not 100% compatible with Windows 8.1, or maybe is somewhat buggy. What can we do about it?

      I can post the dxdiag log if necessary. Here's the event info:
