I had gone over to a friend's house to uninstall his old Geforce 8200 GT and install the new Radeon 4670, trying as best as possible obviously not to touch the 4670's connectors I had touched it by the edges and tried to not apply any pressure to it as it was installed. Screw in and all, turned the PC and it worked perfectly. The computers specs are as follows: Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 System Motherboard: G31M-ES2L BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG Processor: Pentium® Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz (2 Cores) Memory: Kingston DDR2 2046MB RAM PSU: 400w (card usually only takes 300w) The powercolor URL to the GPU. http://www.powercolor.com/eng/products_features.asp?ProductID=4560 The VPU errors occured while in game only. We had tried using the updated drivers from the website itself, powercolor, however after an hour or so the VPU error had kicked in. Uninstalled them and used the disc's drivers, games then went for a good 5ish hours at least before the VPU error kicked in. We also don't have any heat issues, GPU-Z came up with 60 degrees when in game and besides that, the case is sometimes wide open (no side panel) to allow more airflow as needed. The most updated driver ver from powercolor is: Driver + Ver: HD4650/ HD4670 Series PCI-E & Catalyst 9.11 + Version 8.67. Date: 26/11/2009 Now, I myself am also using a Radeon 4670 only I am using ASUS. I have never had a single issue and my driver ver+date (dxdiag) is: Driver Version: 7.15.0010.0176 Date: 2/4/2009 Lucky enough for me, ASUS provides the newest + older drivers unlike Powercolor, so I am unable to find any older Powercolor drivers. We also tried the ATI Radeon drivers but had installation errors, we tried again and this time currently the setup has not generated any errors. The ATI drivers worked, but then produced another VPU error 5mins later. Anyone got any ideas at all? This is plain frustrating.
