I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with an Intel GM45 Express Chipset. I am running Windows Vista Home Basic with 4 meg of ram. On boot up I get the message "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered, Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered" This happens periodically throughout the session. I have narrowed this issue down to the chipset drivers by using device manager and have tried updating the drivers on several occasions with no success. I tried upgrading to Windows 7 and this only made the problem worse (lockups). Currently I have done a clean install and used the drivers and OS software that originally came with the unit (July 2009) but the problem persists. Anybody have any ideas??
