    I'm having a similar (if not identical) problem; when running videos, the screen goes black, sometimes pixelates, and then once recovered, the error message "Display driver R300 stopped responding and has been recovered successfully" appears. This is happening repeatedly, such that I cannot watch videos either on Youtube or from DVD.

    I'm running Vista basic on a Fujitsu/Siemens laptop, the video card is an ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M series. I've updated the drivers to no effect, and tried reinstalling Adobe Flash (in case that was the source of the problem).

    Any suggestions? (If I need to give more information, please let me know! Determined to sort this out, it's a real problem.)

    This exact same thing is happening to me as well, and occurred recently in the past 2 days, as did yours. It started occurring after a Windows Update to my Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My laptop is a Gateway MT3707. Its even happening to me on webpages without videos.

    I know I should open another thread, but this is my exact problem, so 2 birds with 2 stone? Help us!

    In the past week this has started happening to me.
    I use Chrome as my web browser and I regularly get the display driver r300 stopped & responded message. I'm not viewing any videos at the time, none that I'm aware of anyway.
    I have a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop, ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M card, running Vista Basic. Very similar to BiscuitBuscemi.
    It's driving me mad.
    Any suggestions appreciated.
