windows 7 home pre 64 bit
ATI Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

I have just installed windows 7 on my pc (a clean install from xp) my pc and hardware was running fine on xp but since I upgraded to win 7 I keep getting a “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” warning pop up, its really bad its happens 50 something times in the last few hours!!! You get a freeze and or a black screen then it works again for a few minutes.

As soon as I try and go on the internet with IE 8within seconds it does it. It will also do it if I start doing stuff on the desktop as well or even if I am typing a MS word doc so its not just IE 8.

The graphics card is a Sapphire HD 3850 AGP I have tried the latest 8.671.0.0 drivers but it is really bad with these installed it completly crashes and blue screens and restarts so I am currently using the ones windows update put on which is 8.632.1.2000, it still freezez lots but no blue screens so it is a little better.

Has anyone got a fix for this because my new win 7 pc is currently unusable until I get a stable driver sorted.

This is my first post ever so any help will be very gratefully received.
