Hey guys, got a weird problem here. I'll be playing for a while, sometimes 5 mins sometimes longer and then screen locks up and I get a flash of the old VPU recover from ATI CCC, screen goes black then I get to go back in the game this time for a shorter period of time and eventually it CTD. This happens with all games so I don't think its the game. Then, back at desktop , close the VPU recover window and things seem fine but now all of my windows and internet scrolling are like a slide show, like I have no vid drivers. If I reboot all is well. And I cant get back in any game until I reboot. Running the latest ATI driver, and this has happend with 8.7 , 8.8 and 8.9 and I just installed 8.10 with the FAR CRY2 hotfix. I have done full reinstall of drivers, the proper way and re-installed DX9c and it still does it. I remember I had a stange time installing dot.net because of CCC. I installed ccc first and my dot.net wasnt up to date. And then I did a complete re-install of drivers after that just to make sure. But I think I did install it correctly. Any ideas?? Man I hope its not the vid card, it's brand new~!!! specs AMD 6400 Palit 4870 512mb 2gig corsair ddr 800 winxp sp2 32bit thanks in advance.
