Hello, I've had this laptop for about 45 days now, and have used it most of that duration with absolutely no problems. About 2 hours ago, I was on the internet getting a software update and the whole screen turned into garbage and it hard-froze. After hard-rebooting, WinXP told me that "ATI Radeon Mobility driver seems to be the cause of the instability" and asked to send a report to Microsoft. Anyhow, about 10 seconds later, I opened a browser and it did the same thing again. Insant weird scan-lines and garbage with hard-freeze. I left the system off for about an hour before trying again, yet still it does the same thing after about 10 seconds of being booted up, the screen turns into garbage. Any ideas??

Thanks alot!!
