My Son is complaining that his laptop has slowed and he gets video card error messages when playing games.
Dell Inspiron 15R 5010 with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

The device manager shows it working properly and it has the most updated drivers installed

Is there a way to test or stress test a video card?

Normaly in the catalyst ((least in the old one, i don't use it anymore)) there was an option to view if there was any errors.

Passmark has a good range of tests for you,

a burnin test or a performance test may be in place.

There is a video stress tester here:

However I cannot personally vouch for it as I have not had occasion to use it.
