    Nipqer -

    Do you know the exact error message that pops up? Or any information on it from Event Viewer? Reliability Monitor? If you could post any of those, it might go a long way toward solving the issue.

    Also, have you tried searching the Intel website for drivers for the Mobile Intel 4 series? Nvidia and ATI/AMD generally have beta drivers available from their sites as well that can be a bit further along than those available elsewhere.

    I had a possibly similar issue, only it was not the display driver, it was acrobat updater. Whenever the auto updater tried to communicate with Win 7 64bix, it crashed the video system. I just removed the acrobat updater from starting at boot and the problem went away.

    Ok.. That definitely seems like a video driver issue - have you checked Intel's web site for an updated Win 7 compatible driver?
