i have a radeon IGP 345M in my hp pavillion ze5500 laptop, with 64Mb of vid. mem. lately, its been crashing alot. i havent changed the driver or anything. im running the factory driver that came with it on the cd. i reinstalled xp an few months ago but it still happens. when it happens, the screen just freezes up, nothing moves, then i hear a bios beep, then its just locked up. i hafta hold down the power button to shut it off; then when its back up it says the system has recovered from a serious error blah blah blah

any ideas?

thanks

First step would be to download the newest driver and install it.

i tried to; ATI doesnt provide downloads, and HP doesnt either. ATI says get drivers from HP, HP says use the ones off ur disk...

Ouch.
Well, the best thing about an HP is the warranty, I'd take it back and make 'em fix it or get you a new one.
