I have a Gateway NV79 laptop with Inel HD graphics driver and it keeps crashing if I open Youtube or any other application with flash player, I replaced original hard drive with new one as old one corrupted coz of too many reboots, I restored factory settings in new hard drive and no other application installed other than vendor apps and I tried different versions of Intel HD drivers as Intel support suggested, but nothing seems to fix the issue. If I uninstall the driver then system stays stable, but display isn't good and the max resolution I have is 1024x768. I came across so many other forums and found that I can't install any other display drivers like nvidia as graphics card is built-in. Has anyone come across this issue and fixed it? This is really killing me, and I don't want to buy another new laptop as I am waiting for Windows 8 release. Any help is really appreciated.
According to your computer specifications, your system comes with switchable graphics. This means you have Intel graphics and ATI graphics as integrated video. I regret to inform you that the Intel graphics drivers do not work for systems with switchable graphics. Intel recommends loading drivers directly from Gateway.
