Display driver R300 keeps crashing, what can I do to stop it?

I have the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M driver and it constantly crashes, it has gotten so bad that I don't even have to be on youtube for it to crash, it happens when I just open my browser which is Chrome. I have uninstalled my driver and re-installed it, I have uninstalled my flash player and re-installed it as well. I have installed the Catalyst Control Center, nothing changed, I installed Glary Utilities nothing changed. I cleaned every single aspect of my laptop that I possibly can think of and updated every single thing that I can think of and NOTHING HELPS. I even did the right click on videos to disable the hardware acceleration, did the event error log thing as well, result, NOTHING. Someone PLEASE HELP, it is driving me nuts! My computer details> Gateway MT3705, Windows Vista Home Premium Service pack 2. Genuine Intel CPU T2060 1.60Ghz, 32bit. As mentioned already ATI Radeon Xpress 200m Series, primarily run Google Chrome Version 24.0.1312.52 m and have Adobe Flash Player

Typically when overheating is the problem, you will see a message or warning about this. When systems crash it is typically a hardware or driver problem. I would do a clean installation of the operating system and see if that works without crashing. Then get the latest driver from the manufacturer site. If you still have problems, there is a good chance it is a hardware problem and the device (video chip) is physically damaged and will need to be replaced or repaired. Or maybe it is just loose or not making good contact. Hope that helps.

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

When I watch a show from youtube or when I use a programme that require much graphic, my screen will have an instant black out and recover from the blackout followed by a notification which states:...
There appear to be problems with alot of different software and windows 7 as faras compatability. In my expierience, you never want to allow any upgardes to ATI/AMD through windows., I learned that the hard way. They ar not compatable and usually immediately screw up resoulution and send you searhing for a way to fix the picture(blue screen). The third link is AMD's link for updates which should work for you. If this doesn't help let me know in "add comments" at end of solution.

check Toshiba site for oem driver video update. seems like you did an upgrade for a card your unit does not have installed. last resort go to 'device manager' check status box for 'display driver' and see what card is used in your unit. also check Toshiba website for the specs on your model.

Get the ATI Radeon Driver, which can be found here:

Select your operating system and select your card (ATI Radeon Xpress 200M), this may be the generic Radeon Driver so don't panic.

Download and install.
