Having problems with your ATI PC Desktops ?

ATI driver problem

\015 My computer often restarts during games and when I look what the problem is, it is Blue screen of death and when I check for a solution it just says the ATI driver stopped working properly and that a driver update might help, but I have the newest drivers and it doesn't help. What should I do?\015

Answers :

ATI cards are usually pretty solid. It is possible you have a hardware problem. However since you are gaming I would say your video card cpu is overheating. There is a cooling fan on newer ATI cards and they do get full of grunge and then don't cool the video processor enough. Normally you don't notice but games push the card to its limits, it overheats and then you get a bsod. If you reboot that will cool it enough to run again. It might not run as smooth which is the clue it had overheated.

\015\012If it isn't overheating you may have the setting wrong or set too aggressively or you are simply doing more than the card is meant to do. You can use the catalyst control center to reset the card or tweak it and see if that makes it behave.
\015\012
\015\012Unfortunately if it is not one of those you do have a hardware problem and the card needs to be repaired or replaced. ATI has a great service policy (some older cards were lifetime ie yours not the cards) so it can be worth talking to them. If the card is not covered they also usually have some kind of trade in policy where you get a a discount on a new card by trading in your old one. It's worth checking out.
