    Recently ran SP2 update and next day get "serious error" that error occurred in ATI graphics driver(Ati2dvag to be exact).Went to device manager and under display adapters it shows 128DDR ATI Radeon 9700TX w/TV-out and the other one that shows is the same only has sec at the end. M$ refers me to ATI site but not sure what exactly to uninstall or D-L? Any thoughts appreciated Thanks! :eek:

    First download the latest Catalyst Driver from ATI's website: http://www.ati.com/home/online/CatalystXPdriver.html

    Then go to ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in Control Panel and uninstall the ATI Control Panel and ATI Display Driver and then reboot. After the reboot run the new driver uninstall to install the latest drivers. Hopefully that will resolve the problem.
