I keep getting this blue screen error called ati2dvag. I googled it, and alot of people have had the problem, yet I have not found a solution. So I deleted my drivers, did a driver clean in safe mode (using driverclean) , followed the directions to a T... Tried downloading from the ATI site, the drivers and all , and when it goes to install the driver it says "error video driver not found, try installing with a vga first" or something along the lines of that... So I downloaded the drivers from the Dell website, and it worked. (Although I still sometimes get the blue screen) and when I installed the Omega drivers, when I click to open the Omega Driver tools, it says "Error, BIOS not available" or something along the lines of that... So somethig is definitely wrong with my drivers. It's been driving me crazy! (get it... get it...) Anyways... Please help... Thanks

Start the PC and keep tapping the delete key until it enters set up. Look for and load BIOS defaults, press F10, press enter, type Y, press enter

Use the software CD for the ATI card

The delete key takes me nowhere, perhaps because it's a laptop? I went to setup (F2) but I was unable to do anything to the BIOS... Any suggestions?

BIOS defaults should be there, it's a usual part of its set up
