Unhappy Screen Goes Black, Audio Buzzes
Heya,

Every now and then when I'm watching videos full screen, the screen will go completely black and the audio will slow right down for a couple of seconds then just buzz until I restarted the computer.

This used to happen alot when I played games, but because of the problem I've been put off slightly until it is fixed. :P

Anyone know what the problem is?

You might want to try another version of ATI drivers, not necessarily newer. I run my ATI AIW 9800 Pro using Catalyst driver 8.3 because it always crashed with newer versions.
