Adobe Hardware acceleration and 280x question crash

i had my PC crash while watching a fb video and it saying atkimdag.sys and i gog=ogled it and it said something to do with drivers or adobe hardware acceleration. so i disabled hardware acceleration on adobe flash and my question was will disabling that affect how my games look? will it down grade my graphics or framerates? what would be causing that error anyway? i use windows 8.1

  1. sorry for no reply.

    No it won't effect your gaming performance.

    What the software does is graphical rendering is done on dedicated hardware (your GPU / graphics card) rather than your CPU. But for gaming, it is essentially unneeded.
  2. Do you know what would be causing that crash akimdag.sys though?
  3. corrupt patch or driver itself, I really don't know exactly what it is.
