Hi

I got a ATI Radeon HD2400 Pro, while previously I had a Nvida onboard graphics chip. I installed the card and installed the newest catalyst drivers, but when I try to play a Game it freezes and it crashes or the VPU Recovery Message appears. I tried the Omega drivers and older drivers too, they didn't help. I checked the temperature with Riva Tuner and it shows around 50 C°, so heat cant be the problem. Dxdiag says no problems found.
The slot is a PCI Express x16.
I have a 400 watt power supply while the cards box says 300 or better.
I have a Nvidia chipset, and the newest drivers I could find for them
I have XP, 1GB RAM and an AMD 3000+

And I got the card from a friend, so I dont think its broken.

I hope someone can help me with this.

What brand and model is your "400W power supply"? How old is it? Did you uninstall the nVidia graphics drivers and clean up with driver remover-type of utility before inserting the Radeon and installing its drivers?
