I get an e-mail

If you click start, right click my computer, click properties, hardware, device manager

If display adapters is listed, if you click the + next to it, does it show ATI mobility X1400

No it does not show the ATI Mobility Radeon when I go into device manager. Instead the closest thing to a graphic driver is Intel® 82801 PCI Bridge- 2448

I found out which graphic driver I had because there was a shortcut that was on my desktop since I got it that said "Hardware Tour" and it listed the ATI Mobility Radeon on there.

oh..it listed this when I clicked on Hardware Tour

M285 Features
- Intel Duo and Solo Core Processors
- Intel 945 Chipset with 667 MHz front side Bus
- Up to 4 GB of DDR2 Memory
- Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 or ATI Radeon X 1400 PCI Express Graphics

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System

When I installed Everest, the first time it ran, it said "This Computer seems to have an Intel i945GM/PM "Calistoga" motherboard chipset. The current version of Everest you are running does not fully support your system."

Then it asks me if I want to send a Hardware Report and submit it to Lavalys. I said yes.

I attached a print screen of what has happened to my computer

I went onto the internet to one of my favorite sites and then my monitor shuts down and my computer freezes for about half a minute...then it loads back up and the colors and pictures in the background are all distorted.

Look at the attachment to see what I'm talking about

Plug and Play Monitor [NoDB]

I have a laptop


More pictures of websites where the graphics and pictures are distorted after my mouse freezes, the monitor shuts down, then comes back up with distorted images....
The longer my computer is on, the more frequent these attacks
