win 7 Freezes Reboot Needed Driver Display Error

Hi All,
I hope I'm doing this right. My problem is I upgraded a Gateway Laptop from Vista to Win 7 Home Premium. My work notebook, An Acer One, had XP. I did a clean install on this one. Both machine give me the following error: Display Driver for Intel Graphics Accelerator for Windows Vista (R) stopped responding, but recovered successfully.

the Gateway does freezes but does respond. the Notebook locks completely, black screen, I can't do anything to get it to start up after sleep or hibernation. I have to take the battery off so it will start up again.
I read Capt. Jack's article ont he SF Diagnostic Tool, so have done that. I hope it attached to this message okay. I'm using the Notebook to do this. I don't mind, but I use the notebook all the time for work and while traveling. I'm not techo enough to understand what it all means. any help would be appreciated. I have Driver Finder and according to it have updated the drivers needs.
Thanks.
Alex

I looked in the directory on the desktop and found this listed. Hope it's right. Doesn't look very large. I thought everything was in the file I uploaded.
Thanks for any help.

Well, thanks to everyone who helped. I've done all I can. Found a cool program from here that allowed me to look at the dump files. It was igdkmd32.sys. I found them in a file under windows called WatchDog. They go right back to when I updated to Win 7 on both computers. I've since updated the drivers from Intel, so can only hope that all will be well.
