    I have an older IBM Thinkpad A31 that is still excellent for my daily needs (no high power games or anything).
    However recently I started getting this message on Youtube: "The ati2dvag display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality."
    The first three or four Youtube videos always work normally. Then I get the message and the video continues, but the display is extra large and coarse sort of like a safe mode display but a little more so. When I reboot, the cycle continues. First three of four vids work normally, then the crash. It is not a certain video that does it. It depends on how many I have viewed.

    I was not sure where to post this but thought I would try this forum first. Thank you,
    Richard

    Go into Device Manager, double-click the ATI graphics adapter item, click the "Driver" tab, click "Update Driver".

    The driver reinstall seemed to do it. I should have known, but the wording of the error message threw me off.
    Thanks,
