Hey guys, my roommate's laptop seems to randomly crash to a bluescreen when he hooks up an external display. His laptop is a gateway e475m. His graphics chip is a ati 2300. It just hooks up vga style. It doesn't seem to do it when its idleing but if we watch a video or surf the web or play a game, it crashes. THanks ahead of time.
