If it fixes it and drivers are unavailable elsewhere I say go for it.
The Link i posted has updated Drivers I believe !!

Did you reboot after you installed the new driver? Did you uninstall the old driver first?

Continuous Crashing

I purchased a Window 7 OS 64 bit Home Premium edition 6 months ago. Unfortunately, the system has started "crashing" all of the time. I cannot find a pattern as to when it happens. The screen goes black and gives me a blue screen that is totally filled with information. It allows me 2-3 seconds to read it which is impossible. The only thing I have been able to get from it is that the Display Driver needs to be reset. I am not technical so I don't even know what this means or where/how I go about doing this. Please help!
