I have noticed a new problem that I believe is just with games on Steam...not sure if its related to ATI card 5700 series or not..
Occasionally, the game will freeze, lockup...you can hear the sound and everything around you, AI characters, etc continue to move but your character/mouse just freezes, locks up, forcing a PV restart...alt/con/delete won't work.
Started with Mafia 2 and happened frequently with Saints Row 3..all drivers
are updated and I turned off anti-aliasing too..recently, happened less frequently with SR 3 but it now happens with Call of Duty, Black ops...even left for dead 2, which ran fine a year ago, is starting to freeze/lockup...games will play fine lets say for 15-20-25 minutes then boom a lockup..
I believe I have only experienced this with games on Steam...
Would this be a Steam/ATI conflict, a Direct X issue, driver
problem, graphics setting issue?
