    Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown. Microsoft windows detected a possible device failure.

    The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver update.

    The display driver for RADEON 9200 SE seems to be responsible for this system instability.

    Radeon 128 Meg 9200SE Graphics card

    I have the same problem with this video board (Radeon 9200SE).

    I've downloaded upgraded drivers and all, to no joy.

    To make it work I have stopped the driver loading, and use a default driver, which is a work-around, not a solution.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Especially for you immortal cause I know EXACTLY whats wrong with yours, go into your BIOS, go to video device (it could say a million things depending on your motherboard) but the options will say something like, AGP, PCI, and onboard (and sometimes AGP/Onboard). just select the type of video card you have installed. Then when you get into windows, click start > right click my computer> properties > hardware > device manager, and make sure that you disable all of the display devices EXCEPT the one you have installed.
