I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop, 1.60GHz, 1GB memory, running Windows XP SP2. Lately (last 2-3 weeks), occasionally, when accessing the internet, my screen scrambles - horizontal bars, yet some of image remains, system locks up. Powering down, re-booting, problem goes away, may not return that day or even next day. Lately, seems to be happening more frequently. Also, narrowing it down, seems to only be happening when accessing AOL, usually after sign-on, when going to a different screen or accessing URL. I also have another on-line provider, use IE and Firefox, problem doesn't seem to appear there at all.

I'm assuming it has something to do with video drivers and possibly compatibility with AOL. I'm running AOL 9.1 and have re-installed that software, with same results. Should I look at re-installing the video drivers from Dell?

Thanks in advance.
