Subject: driver for display goes to a infinite loop by viewing a html!

Moderator: I am not subscribed, but this is probably useful info...

I've tested the link on a WinXP SP2 box (P3 500mhz w/ 256MB) and she
froze pretty much instantly (no scrolling or user interaction at all)
and after about 20 seconds the machine rebooted. No BSOD, no warning,
just a reboot and a "Windows Recovered from a Serious Error" message on

Card: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro AGP 2X
Driver: 5.1.2001.0

It's just a VERY large image... Aparently, the browser doesn't handle 
well the memory allocation. It hangs the system for some seconds. Once u

switch the task it's all working OK.
