Windows 7: Display driver error

Windows 7
Display driver error

Hey, i just bought a new laptop for college and every once in awhile it freezes up on me. The screen flashes black and i usually have to hold the power button to shut it off. One time it recovered and i got a message saying "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"... "Driver ATI Radeon family"......I'm not sure what the problem is and i would be very thankful to anyone who can offer help.

Thank you
