Hey guys.

I frequently get the following error dialog box pop up when I boot up.

I have a Dell Inspiron 9100 Laptop, WinXP.


"ATI video bios poller client: ati2evxx.exe – Application Error

The instruction at “0x00439d76” referenced memory at “0x00450080”. The memory could not be “written”.

Click OK to terminate the program
Click on Cancel to debug the program"


I have tried updating the video card drivers but my computer says that I already have the most current version.

What should I do??

Thanks!

How long have you had the current drivers? I think that error is caused by the drivers being much newer than the hardware. You may need to go to an older video driver and the current drivers may need uninstalling with driver uninstall program first.

Current drivers have been here since my HD crashed & I had my tech guy install a new HD.

Haven't played with it since.

Sometimes Windows update will updates the drivers.

uninstall the current drivers and restart.
Look for an ATI driver without all of the other fluff they bundle now.

If that doesn't work, buy an Nvidia card. IMHO, they are a lot more stable and have better drivers. Look on slickdeals.net or newegg.com, there's always deals on graphics cards.
