    I recently installed a driver for this card, but my computer goes black, usually during firefox sessions. I need help..(My computer does not have Malware anymore)

    Any help?

    I have: An Acer Aspire 5101AWLMi
    AMD Turion 64
    120GB PATA HDD

    I also want my FPS to increase, I don't want 30-40 fps anymore.

    you want your FPS to go up like in games? Sadly only a new video card will do that, and being a laptop you can just got ang get a new one. SO unless you get a tower PC for games you wont be able to get much, if any boost in games. As for anti-virus protection you need some, go get a free one like AVG free ed. from the net and run that.

    Go to Device manager and findout what it says and also what driver it is.

    Also did the driver improve the games performance??

    go to Device Manager

    To get to Device Manager click Start>>Run type devmgmt.msc click OK

    Look down the list for Display Adapters
    Click on the + sign to expand
    Double click on your video card
    Click on the Driver tab

    it should tell you there what version

    Yea that site you posted in the link has that driver CATALYST 7-4-mobile Version:8.360.0.0

    It is a Catalyst driver and may have issues

    If you play the game on lower settings see what happens.

    You didn't answer if this driver you installed made the games performance better than the original driver.....

    Yes it went from 15-30 frames to 40-50 frames :D

    Unfortunately it freezes up a lot when I am on firefox, especially watching videos.

    Or you go back to the older Acer provided ATI drivers: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/Acer_drivers.cfm

    For the Aspire 5100 series they list ATI Chipset and Display driver version v8.251

    And please don't make new topics with the same issue. You need to be patient, this is a free user supported forum and most of us have other priorities that we need to handle first.

    I understand that but I have been here long enough to know what it is like. I'm just really frustrated. Sorry.

    (PS: I am Torontonian, how about you?)
