    Whenever I try to open and play a relatively new PC game (Mafia, The Sims 2) it minimizes itself and displays the following message: "VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator because it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands"

    I have a brand new VisionTek Radeon X1300 Video card...help!

    Can you provide the specs of your computer? Also what was your old video card, did you install its drivers and did the games work before?
