Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Notebook ?

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-K25 and currently when I access the web or any kind of graphics related application my screen freezes and othe times I get the BSOD. Thinking that a new install of XP would fix it was a mistake. After researching the web I found out that others that experienced the same issues with their VAIO resolved the issue by updating the BIOS. Do you recommend the same and if so then where can I get the drivers for it? Thanks in advance.
