Default PC crashing/Suspected video card.

Alright, first time here.. I recently formatted and installed XP onto my computer, and I'm having some problems with my video card, which is an RADEON 7200. When I boot up, windows detects my card, and everything is working properly. But, when I go and update the drivers with the latest catalyst ones, my PC is prone to just freezing up, and restarting. Afterwards, I get certain error messages, like

-"The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation"


Though, when I uninstall the new drivers, everything works like normal again. I have no idea what the problem is.. Oh, and here are my specs.
AMD 1800+
QDI Kudoz7 Motherboard
256 megs RAM
XP Pro..
