    Well i was searching this problem over the internet andd I found one of my old posts in another site lol

    This is what the BSOD message says:

    ati2dvag is in an infinite loop and causes windows to shut down, starting memory dump now

    and i also added that..."computer goes into a standby like mode and blue screen comes up with message"

    Well I decided to uninstall ATI again and try the Omega 6.1 Drivers.

    It seems like THAT worked!

    I had used Driver Cleaner AND Cab Cleaner as well and installed Omega and it seems that I get now 25-35 FPS and I don't crash.

    Okay well i DID get the BSOD but it was blank! No message! And also the screen just turns blank.

    I am going to try to set my AGP to 4x see if that works.

    But we know that we get the "ati2dvag is in an infinite loop and causes windows to shut down, starting memory dump now" and that ati2dvag is causing problems!

    [edit] i was reading the internet and it was saying that "ati2dvag" crashes are caused by SP2! And I remember I installed SP2 around that time I think!

    I cannot believe I found this...

    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic15393.html

    When Swiper told me to update that, he WAS on the right track. What I had to do was change it to the PCI one, and it TOTALLY worked for me! I seriously played CS: S for 3 hours straight and with awesome FPS.

    If you are having the Infinite Loop problem with ATI2DVAG.dll, this will help you!

    I was experiencing the same problem after having installed my new graphics card (GeForce 7600 GT) upon trying to start NFS-MW. I read the former solutions and became hence aware that it might be a monitor issue. I checked for my installed monitor (Philips 109E5) driver: a default win driver was installed. So i downloaded the proper driver "109E5.INF" and the problem was solved. I hope you may solve your problem likewise.

    Wow, its weird that you get out of range. Most likely its the refresh rate.
    Sp2 is Service Pack 2, basically the 2nd "fix" of xp.
    Try updating your new video card driver. And IF there's a driver for your screen, install it. Because it might optimize it.
    No, plug and play isn't bad.

    Btw, this is an old topic! (I was sent an email, and i was confused, lol)
