Question VGA Laptop to HD LCDTV Problem.

For awhile when I first started using my VGA cable to display (either mirrored or externally) to my HD LCDTV it was fine. But now it seems it wants to adjust on it's own every 20 minutes or so. Occasionally I will get the "driver have successfully recovered from a crash" text bubble and it will either keep playing or just lose signal. When it auto-adjusted itself it went from like 800 x 600 back to 1440 x 900 twice then it worked just fine. Of course if the resolution doesn't work it will tell me it's not supported then I just switch it to another resolution. This also used to happen but doesn't seem to anymore; my computer would crash and do a physical memory dump during a movie.

My laptop: HP Pavillion dv7

TV: HD LCD Insignia 1080p 60hz

I'm not sure if I need to update my diver or if I just have it set at the wrong settings.
Any help is appreciated.

*Edit* Also the driver is called atikmdag
