I have a Dell XPS M2010 computer that I recently switched from 32 Bit Vista to 64 Bit Windows 7 Professional. This driver (ATI Mobility Radeon 1800) fails countless times every time I am on this computer. Yesterday alone, it failed 45 times.

Problems and Solutions says to update driver but when I go to Device Driver Update, it says driver is up to date and working properly. COMEON! 45 fails in one day is not proper.

I found an update on line but I am not very trusting of sites I don't know.

I have lost files too many times to count and the thought of it happening again is too much. To top that off, I have my older files backed up on an external drive but it is no longer compatible with the 64 Bit W-7.

I'm not a rocket scientist so can anyone tell me step by step what the heck to do to stop the madness?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your graphics card is too old for windows 7. You should get a new computer. It probably shouldn't even be running vista, I'd throw xp on that thing if you want any use out of it at all.

Wow, I had a feeling the answer was not going to be good. I wish Dell would have told me this computer was being weeded out of the line. I should have gotten the hint when I struggled to find a new keyboard and battery for it. With all my software, I have invested several thousand into this thing with the most recent 1500 to upgrade not even a year ago. Guess I am stuck. I certainly can't afford a new computer. I do appreciate your responce though.
