I just got Mafia 2 (which is great when it works), but recently I've been getting constant, random crashes whenever I play. The screen will tear like crazy and audio will speed up or crack, and then it crashes. Then if I try to start the game up again, it doesn't even get to the company logos. What's really weird is that after Mafia crashes, I can't run any other game, video, or even start Firefox, because everything is corrupted. This problem goes away after rebooting, and no other games crash/artifact until Mafia crashes. Also, it looks like other people are getting something similar in the Steam forums, both from ATI and Nvidia cards. My card is overclocked to 800/1600/1800, 1037mv and the max temps are 75C in Furmark and 64C in Mafia, so it's not overheating. Is anyone else having the same problem?
