computer help

About 2 months ago my laptop HD went out so i got a new one. Well i already bought XP so i didnt wanna buy it again so i got it bootlegged. Well all was good wiht the install but every now and then it will freezeup and go to some blue screen talkin about an error and restart. It is really wierd and inconvient. Then when it boots back up it will talk about some error with the ATI RATHEON driver or something. Anyone make any sense of whats goin on or what i can do? please help. Thanks

ATI Radeon is your video card. Update your video card drivers.

Yes, it very well could.

Go to the ATI Radeon website and get the newest drivers.
