    Hello, has anyone ever seen this error:
    The ati2dvag display has stopped working normally. Save your work & reboot the system to restore full display functionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to microsoft.
    After computer is on 15 minutes or so it everytihng appears to be in safe mode. It isn't but that is what it looks like, words are HUGE...
    Please help, I am a poor single girl w/ no money to get it fixed. :)

    What operating system are you using? Before this started did you change anything, like new hardware or any windows service packs? Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for the video card?

    A quick Google of the driver name brought forth all sorts of tales of woe. Looks like you are not the only person to ever strike this problem. An update to the most recent driver for your card may help - start here: http://www.ati.com/support/driver.html . Good luck.

    Are you using the driver with the CATALYST Control Center? I had a similar error to that one when I had my Radeon 9600XT. Try the driver that does NOT include the CATALYST Control Center.

    Make sure you uninstall the old ATI driver and software from ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in the Control Panel before installing the new drivers to avoid conflicts and files errors.
