Is there anything in your kernel that might improve the stability of the

Have you tried disabling FrameBufferCompression?

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it last night but it didn't help.

For anyone else having this problem, I seem to have solved it by disabling the composite extension. I'm able to play video and games without any crashing or lock ups now.

I added these lines to my xorg.conf:

Section "Extensions"
	Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

Not ideal, but I've got a usable laptop again.
