I'm having some problems with my video card. I got a radeon 9600 pro, and whenever i play cs my comp freezes after playing for less then a minute and then comes back because of the vpu recovery thing. It keeps freezing like 10 seconds after it comes back. I have the latest drivers.

How can i fix it?

Do you have it overclocked at all? Even the overdrive feature that you put the check mark in the advanced display properties?

You said you have the latest drivers? The best drivers ive found are the 3.9 catalist version try those ans see if it helps.

actually i posted on the steam forums and they said to try different drivers. i tried the omega ones, they didnt help. then i tried the dna drivers, they made it a lot better, now it doesnt happen as frequently as before, but it still happens.

What is the make/model of your power supply?

What video card did you have prior to the Radeon 9600 Pro?
