X1950XTX Problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a core 2 duo e6700 with 2gb ram and an X1950XTX graphics card. I have it at it's stock values and the latest (latest mean the legacy drivers that amd provide when you search) and i have problems. I play many games including Oblivion (still) fallout 3 and new Vegas, the Witcher, dragon agerigins etc. My problem is that i constantly get freezing, then it takes me back to the desktop with the VPU recover box. I'm not getting any weird artifacts or anything and sometimes i can play for hours without anything happening.

My graphics card is fine really as far as i can tell but if i play graphics intensive games such as oblivion (thats including a hundred mods and texture packs) and it crashes like it does.

Any advice on what to do? I've heard on these experimental drivers like Omegadrivers and such. Are these any good. I would also like to overclock to net some extra fps.

it may need a thorough cleaning and new thermal grease if that doesn't work it may be going bad in witch case if it's properly done some times the baking procedure helps.
