Have you checked which driver is appropriate for your video card?
The latest driver might not be right for your card, and this would
cause major issues.

Your best long-term approach is to find a video card that is well
supported, and replace the video card.

I decided upon the AMD HD7770, it's a reasonable price for good
performance.  It also has good driver support.
