Research yields a number of message boards that list the ATi drivers as the problem with updates being troublesome,the old driver needs to uninstalled before doing a update,and you have to remember to disable the on board graphics if not already done.

you may also be using a version of DirectX that needs upgrading to work well with the new driver (just guessing). use Start/Run/dxdiag <enter> to check it out
