Default World of Warcraft Vista problem

I upgraded a computer to Vista for a friend. They have world of warcraft. On XP the game worked fine. Now that they have vista the screen goes black every few seconds and then comes back. This happened all the time until I upgraded the video driver. Now it doesn't happen as often but still happens. This is a Gateway GT5224 computer with 2 GB of memory.

Below is the error report. Links to the files that "help describe the problem" are below that.

Video Hardware error ... seems to me that means the Video Card isn't as capable as needed. Probably need to research for a replacement card that is more up-to-date that will upgrade the pc's current card.

To me, it looks like the problem comes from a GPU being out of it's RAM. Try lower settings.
