I read that and most of those issues don't have to do with me, except I don't know if my other hardware is malfunctioning and making the graphics card mess up.  Is the latest driver for this card bad?  Should I use the older version?

 The latest driver I download for this device-catalyst utlity-doesn't start the download of the actual driver, it says "download cancelled"

Please Help

AMD Catalyst driver version: The one from Dell's support site.  12.7 I believe is the one I was having trouble with

Use an older driver from Dell for your laptop if the new one causes issues.
