Solved PC reboots when I minimize a window

Post by Rena on Sat 07 Feb 2009, 1:59 pm

When I click the minimize button my screen goes blank, as if powering off, and then my computer restarts. It doesn't happen every single time I minimize a window but it does happen a lot. There are no error messages after I log on. Any help will be appreciated.

Update your graphic drivers, if you need help finding them, post your graphic card model here.

Sorry to be such a bother... where would I get that information? If it matters, I have a HP Pavilion a815n with XP Pro.

Ok, I got the information I needed, all you have to do is download and run this Intel Driver update:
