Do not update video card through windows, go to the website and get the proper drivers (HP).
Do you get video crashes from any browser ? (IE, Firefox, Chrome)
Did you reinstall Directx after updating video drivers ?
Yeah, I know it's less than ideal... I just figured any change would be a change and SHOULD fix the exact problem I was having.
I'll do it right now.
I didn't know I should reinstall DX.
Oh, and for the record I'm using Opera... it also recently installed a new version and nothing changed after that.
