I have a Dell Inspiron B130 with Windows XP. Everytime I play a 3D game called Audition it randomy freezes and says my video/display driver stopped working. I was wondering if you knew of a driver download that I was unaware of because this is very frustrating!

it could be because your grafics card is not high enough to run it so you might need to buy a new one if you want to play high grafics games or you can lower the resolution at main menu of the game plz give me good rating thank you
Could be that you have intel integrated graphics and the game does not support your chipset... It could be that the laptop is overheating or that your RAM is bad... I recommend checking your GFX Card first and then doing a ram check with a Linux live cd such as Ubuntu. You can also download a utility that can check your CPU temp if you can not find it in your BIOS.
This is just a rough guide, as it all depends on the the games your looking to play, but this is about normal to get games running without problems :
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Microsoft(r) Windows(r) XP Service Pack 2, Vista • 1.8 GHz processor • 512 MB RAM • 8 GB available hard drive space • 128 MB video RAM or greater, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader / Pixel Shader 2.0 support • Sound card, speakers or headphones • 56.6 Kbps Internet connection required.
RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: 3.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD processor or better • 1 GB RAM or better • 10 GB available hard drive space • 256 MB video RAM, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader / Pixel Shader 2.0 support (Nvidia 6800 or better) • Internet connection with Cable/DSL speeds Note: recommended specifications provide optimal experience for single player and up to 4 player/medium size map multiplayer.
in restoring to the factory setting you need a recovery disc id the system is license to miscrosoft. if your have no recovery disk you should provide a windows XP installation bootable disk. insert the disc in cd/DVD rom and boot the system in CD/DVD rom.
Well start a bit slower then. go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows. freezing ? If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs. Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok any freezing. If its freezing you may have a hardware issue. if you have 2 sticks of memory remove on and or /reseat them boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory. report back
