It all started when after I built my new computer as this was a problem that never occurred on my old one. I put it together one month ago and ever since I would get random freezes while playing a game (at lowest settings), and then it would either go back to working saying that the driver stopped but has resumed, or it would crash and restart my computer. I even managed to get a blue screen once. Apparently, this happened with all versions of ATI's drivers for the video card. I assume it has to be something not configured correctly between my card and my new computer. Or maybe the fact that I'm using 64 bit OS and my video card and driver aren't compatible with it. Maybe it's bad ram? I'm not for sure.

Here are my specs:

  • Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120
  • ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Corsair RAM 4 GB x 2
  • Windows 7 (64 bit)
  • Radeon Sapphire HD 4670 1GB
  • Earthwatts PSU 500w
Thank you.

It's a ... check your GPU clocks. If that's happening to a card that's stock it's shot. GPU core problem but for people who are OC'ing it happens when your core is unstable

I figured this was the case. Thanks. I'm buying a new video card this week anyway so that should fix that issue.
