i have  a  hp phoenix hpe h9-1170  computer  with a  stock generic amd  hd 7770 video card, and  every  few  weeks i  get a  video drivers error that seems to say it recovered itself.  so  i  delete  the hp video  card  drivers off  my  computer  and   redownload  the original drivers from the hp site. is  there  a  better way to  fix this, or  should i  wait  for new drivers to  show  up on  the  hp site,  microsoft  updates, or  try  downloading  the  newer ccc suite  from  the  amd  site? i'm  in  no  rush  to  reformat  my  new  factory  computer. i'm  up  to  date on  all  my  microsoft  updates,  flash,  and  other  stuff  like  java. it  still  mostly happens  on  youtube. and  it  seems  like  once  every  2  weeks  or  so.

here is  the  generic  factory info


hp pavilion a1007w, corsair enthusiast series cmpsu-550vx (550w psu) , 2 gigs OCZ platinum ram (pc 3200), 754 socket athlon64 3200+, HIS radeon hd 4670 agp

I don't think you need to keep uninstalling your video drivers...there are many causes for the message you recieve.  If this constantly happens on YouTube, in IE go to 'tools'>internet options>advanced> and put a check mark in "use software rendering". If using Firefox, the same option is available there.
