    Hey guys i seem to get a graphics card driver crashing often, the win7 theme would default to solid colors, and i would get a error msg

    "A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly"

    Is there something wrong? or is this just the lack of memory on the videocard?? If so Ive consider upgrading to the I7 with the 512 mb videocard.

    thanks.

    I'm assuming you have a mbp?
    or is it an imac?

    some info on the card/machine you currently have would be good..
    are you using parallels or bootcamp?
    also if using bootcamp, are you using the bootcamp drivers off of the sl dvd or the manufacturers newest driver?
