  1. Hi everyone!
    last month, my parents just bought me a new laptop. at first it was going well but then i started experiencing BSOD's and appcrashes. particularly in google chrome which says the "aw snap" page. I have reinstalled windows 7 and all the drivers but then after a few days, it crashes again.

    one more thing, . iv'e downloaded my drivers in the site of MSI and the ATI driver there is clearly outdated compared to the driver i found at the site of ATI. when i downloaded the driver for my videocard at the site of ATI, whenever i install it, it says that it is not compatible with my videocard. probably because i have the switchable graphics feature.

    here's my specs.
    msi cx420
    intel core i5 m520 2.4GHz
    ATI mobility radeon HD5470 and intel HD graphics
    2 gb Ram (yes, its pretty small.. i have plans on upgrading it to a 4gb to maximize my 64 bit OS)
    Synaptics touchpad
    atheros AR9285 wireless network adapter
    realtek RTL8168D/8111D family PCI-E gigabit ethernet NIC

    running on Windows 7 64bit
    Eset Nod32 smart security 5

    programs that crashes
    Spore (i removed it already)
    Warcraft III (it crashes rarely) (it is a portable version of warcraft III)
    L4D 2 (portable version)
    Adobe photoshop cs5.5 (crashed once)
    Google chrome displaying the "aw snap" page and the adobe flash player in google chrome crashes frequently.

    and iv'e included 4 minidump files.
    thanks for reading and i hope you guys can help. :)
