ATI Radeon R300 Error

  1. Howdy:

    I have an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 card in my Acer Ferrari (very cool laptop!). When I view a video (e.g., on YouTube) and click "full screen" it plays for 10 seconds, then screen goes black. Vid is still playing but I can't see it. I hit Escape and it returns to smaller mode. Then I get a "Display driver R300 stopped responding and has recovered" error message. I have the latest driver, Acer says its a software problem, and I'm frustrated. Any help out there for me?

    I'd be most grateful!

    Try the following it fixed my problem
    To view video in full screen mode follow these instructions.

    1. While in web video, e.g. MSNBC, CBS, etc.
    Right mouse click and select 'settings'
    2. Adobe Flash Player Settings box is displayed.
    3. Under 'Display' uncheck (deselect) Enable hardware acceleration then close.

    Result: Full screen mode will play video
