Hi. Yesterday, I got 2 Blue Screens in my Windows 7 Home Premium. I have an HP Envy laptop. I had updated my video driver (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850) earlier in the day (although I experienced similar Blue Screens with my old video driver version too...the old one was also the Mobility Radeon HD 5850, just an earlier version). I was trying to watch an online video in Internet Explorer 8, and I got a Blue Screen. So I had to do a manual shutdown. When it started up again, I chose for Windows to check online for a solution to the problem (but Windows never got back to me with one, if it found it). Later on, when trying to watch a YouTube video, the same Blue Screen appeared, and once again I had to do a manual shutdown. It may be related to my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850, maybe even other things which I can't be sure of...also, I mentioned that I got similar BSODs with my old video driver version too. At that time, I'm pretty sure I was using Firefox instead of IE when trying to watch the online videos. By the way, I was able to watch several Youtube videos normally yesterday, but on one occassion I did get that BSOD. Also, here is what at least part of the BSOD said (on both occassions yesterday): "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed." Please help..thanks.
