- Tecra M3 video drivers causing crashes

drivers 71.14, 71.36, and 76.44. It uses an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 TE
128M. When I uninstall all video drivers (or boot into safe mode), the
laptop runs fine, although of course scrolling is deadly slow and I
can't suspend or hibernate. But when I install either of the two WHQL
certified drivers from Toshiba's site, 71.44 or 71.36, I can
consistently create a crash just by running a 3D screensaver for more
than 3 minutes. The same thing happens with the 76.44 non-WHQL driver
At this point, I'm not at all interested in great graphics performance;
I just want a stable laptop to do some work on. Is there perhaps some
setting within the driver to turn off whatever fancy features are
causing the crash?
The laptop has a 2.13 GHz Pentium M and 2 GB of RAM. It's running WinXP
SP2 with all updates and is using BIOS 1.20, the latest. And I doubt
it's a related, but here's a different problem I ran into with the VPN,
Wi-Fi, and Matlab <http://tinyurl.com/ab7rp .
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
