I have an HP g71-340us laptop with windows 7 on it and I am having serious display driver issues with it.  When I log the computer freezes randomly and the screen flickers on and off.  When it is on I get a message that says display driver for intel graphic accelerator drivers for windows xp have stopped responding. It then eventually restarts or the screen just stays blank.  I've updated the drivers from hp's website, unistalled them and let windows install them again but I always get the same result.  I really need to get this up and running asap.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Drivers at HP site are not upto date.. just checked. Latest driver is released in AUGUST

Please download the driver from Intel and try installing http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19223&ProdId=2991&lang=eng

or you could run the auto detect tool from intel
