I assume the driver you downloaded from IBM is this one: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...cid=MIGR-66884
I would try this. In Control Panel\Programs and Features uninstall the ATI
driver. (Windows will then automatically provide you a temporary generic
driver, so that you can continue to see your screen). If the ATI driver is
not listed in Programs and Features, use Device Manger to uninstall the
driver. Before re-installing the driver downloaded from the above site, run
Msconfig, and, on the Startup and Services tabs, uncheck any entry having to
do with an ATI file, (from ATI Technologies). Apply, OK. On the Services
tab, checking "Hide all Microsoft services" will help you narrow things
down. Then re-install the new driver. Any service or startup item that the
driver needs will be re-configured.
