When I restart my computer I am getting the following message....

ati control panel failed to initialize becasue no ati driver is installed or
ati driver is not working properly. the ati control panel will now exit.

if I were starting my computer from the off position...it may take several
times of on/off to get it to turn over.

i have reloaded the driver. i have talked to sony as I have a sony vaio
notebook...and they said to reformat my hard drive which is a nightmare for
me.

is this a hardware or software problem? is there any software to fix this?
