My laptop was running so slow lately, but workin, so i reformted it, installed all my software, and it crashed everytime the graphics is challeneged, going online playing videos, sometimes the screen flickers black and then shows a Ati message saying VPU recovery and asks to send error report, which it doesnt do, just disapears, then after a little while the screen will go black and thats it, wont do anythin, cans see the screen, fine after a restart, but wont last an hour without doin this aleast 3 times. I have all the proper dell drivers installed and conigured to best performace using the crystal controll center

If anyone can help please, i would apreciate it
