Display driver crashing-radeon HD 5470

I have ACER Aspire 5741G with Radeon HD 5470 and i5 processor,Windows 7 x64.
Display driver sometimes simply stops working during videoplayback in mediaplayers or streaming videos on youtube,everything stops working,black screen comes up and then starts driver video recovery. Notebook is new and I have installed the latest driver,even tryed removing it completely and installing it again but nothing seems to be working:-(

Thanks,but I can't test my graphic card since this is laptop (brand new) that we are talking about:-(
Hm,maybe overheating is the problem?!
I saw one guy had the exact same problem with the same laptop,who also couldn't find the solution.
