Install the other drivers - chipset and firmware. Then run diagnostics - run the Short DST from Seagate Seatools, then defrag your disk and run chkdsk, then run Memtest86+ for a couple of passes. If these pass, upload your results and then temps - use RealTemp and HWInfo - after using your laptop for a few hours.

Good, try not to touch your PC, otherwise it will take longer, better yet reboot before. However, carry on now its started.

Could it be a mismatch between the ram memory?
It suppose to be the same brand when you are on dual channel?
Even if they appear both the same.

It could be possible for a company to creat a laptop motherboard that would have both chips, but usually it is uneconomical and useless.
It's not only possible but it happens and is very useful, if somewhat expensive. Check the specs on a lenovo T500 with switchable graphics. It has the intel mobile express chipset AND the ATI HD 3470.. far from the best for games but good enough to play COD 4 at high quality, low resolution without any lag, or in integrated graphics mode, surf the internet for 5 1/2 hours before I have to plug in.

In Internet Explorer go to this address>>

Intel® Product Support

And click on the Automatically detect and update drivers and software link on the left.

This will scan for Intel Hardware and install the latest drivers for it.

Let me know if you need instructions on how to do so.

Nvidia just released their Optimus technology which allows you to do that, I don't believe any computers have it yet though.
