Windows 7: AMD display driver error when playing Minecraft (screenshot)

AMD display driver error when playing Minecraft (screenshot)

That error message always comes up when I get a few minutes into the game. The game will freeze and then flash black and then stay white until I force close it. I have a Sony Vaio S Series 64bit Laptop that came with Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6630m graphics cards. But it seems the Radeon is giving me trouble. Plus, Minecraft is my only game and this computer is only 3 weeks old so it really shouldn't be acting up. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

alright 1st check up with your graphics drivers here. Sony eSupport - Electronics - Select Your Model enter ur model and make. Find the radeon graphics driver, download it and install.
If that does not seem to work, try this Update graphics drivers:
AMD :http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...to_detect.aspx
As well mine-craft runs through java i believe, as i doubt java would be the problem. Optionally you can try to update that.
This seems to be a minor display driver problem. Please report back if any solutions are found, or if my steps did not take care of your problem. Thanks

Yea I talked with Sony Support and they uninstalled the graphics cards along with checking for updates. As for the Java yea I updated that too. Thanks for the help though I really appreciate it! If you know anything else let me know. I'll just call Sony Support again tomorrow since they're closed today.
