These are the only updates i could find on Dell for my PC.  The test said everything passed so I'm thinking their test isn't very good since my driver always shuts down and says it every time I log on.

I doubt any of those will help. Right-click on computer select manage then device manager. Find your video or graphics adapter and right-click then uninstall. Reboot. It should reinstall it. Perhaps it will do it right.

Well, I appreciate all the help on this. I take it my situation is a lost cause... I'm not surprised since my PC has seemed so doomed lately... Thank you for trying to help. I really appreciate it. I guess it has more issues than can be seen.  I am willing to keep trying but if it's just too old and hurt, than I understand.

I don't think it's too old.  We just need to find the problem.  Try rebooting into Safe mode

 

(Reboot and when you see the maker's logo, hear a beep or it talks about F8, start tapping the F8 key slowly.  Keep tapping until the Safe Mode Menu appears and choose Safe Mode with Networking.  Login with your usual login.)
 
 
Does it still freeze?

Go to:

 

https://downloadcent...eng&ProdId=2991

 

Change "Any operating system" to Windows & (64-bit)

 

Find the  

INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel® 6, 5, 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets

 

and download and save it.  (Click on the Download Arrow on the left and it should take you to:

https://downloadcent...x?DwnldID=20019 where you click on the download arrow again.)  Right click and Run As Admin

 

(You probably need to reboot afterward)

 

Then go back to the Intel Download Center again and get:

 

Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver, Windows 7* 64, Windows Vista* 64 (exe)

 

(don't get the one for developers)

I may be OK skipping your last step. I checked windows update and whatever one I updated rebooted it and the screen is back normal again

Is the video driver still crashing on you?

 

If you are still getting the notice that some network drives could not be connected then Start, Programs, Accessories then right click on Command Prompt and Run As Admin.  This should open a black window.  Type (with an Enter after the line)

net use

(This should show you what drives are mapped.  You really shouldn't have any so it won't hurt to delete them.  To delete a map drive, note the letter shown above, let's say it was z: then to delete z: we type)

net use Z: /delete

Then reboot.

Thats what it says when I tried that. I believe the Mini Serve is the shared network at my office.  Should I still delete?  (By the way, does this mean my office can see in my PC)

And yes, it still says some drivers wont connect when I reboot.  It seems a little better, but still studders during video watching and still does the not responding/freezes. Just not AS often, but still happening.

Having a mapped network drive that is not there can slow it down.  It's not difficult to map it again if it doesn't get done automatically when you log in at the office.

 

Do this command just like you did  the first one to remap it.

net use s:  \\MINI-SERVE\Share folders

See http://www.howtogeek...mpt-in-windows/  for more details and other variations.  The above command is what your IT people should have used as it goes away at the next reboot.  They probably used:

 

net use s:  \\MINI-SERVE\Share folders  /P:Yes

 

which stays unless deleted.

 

It may ask you for your (office)  username and password.

 

I would delete the drive and maybe talk to your IT department about having the drive deleted automatically when you logout at the office.

 

 

 

Right click on (My) Computer and select Manage then Device Manager.  Do you see any Yellow flagged entries.  What are they?

 Do I want to overwrite the remembered connection?  If I say yes, will this make it so I do not need to delete it?

If the yellow flag would be filling in the clear flag/arrow to the left of the names, then no.
