    Hi

    I recently updated my ATI Radeon 9200 driver. Now my computer freezes, whatever I am viewing on the screen will still be there but its just frozen. The mouse nor keyboard will respond adn I have to shut it turn if off and when I log back on I get a error from Microsoft that says either: My graphic card has stopped responding and I need to update my drivers or my system requires a directx of 9.0 or above( which I do). My computer is a Sony Vaio PCV-RS 520 and the OS is windows xp profess, I have Windows service pack 3 and I have updated the BIOS from the Sony website. I went to Guru3d to download the driver sweeper to clean up the drivers after I unistalled them and then I installed the Catalyst 6.5 as instructed. I did it about 3 times and each time it still freezes. I am I doing it correctly? If someone could please please help me I would greatly appreciate it ....Or do I just need to take it to computer repair and have them installed a new graphics card????

    I would attempt to roll back the drive to the previous version.Start the computer in safe mode(continually tap F8 while booting)start in safe mode,go to devise manager display adapters right click on the ATI Radeon 9200 properties then click the driver tab and finally roll back
