Windows 7: Windows 7 64bit crashes when gaming, seemingly to ATI's drivers fault

Hi j0ker,

Sorry if this seems obvious, but did you remember to plug in the power connectors on your new card?

The few times I've had a motherboard beep at me were because I forgot to hook the PCI-E power cables up to the video card.

Cheers,
John

Actually, the main problem seems to be related to your advise. I did connect ONE cable in the asus eah5970 (because it only comes with one), but today i went to the store and they made it work.
Seeminglesly my power supply unit is not powerful enough (600W, i kinda expected it) so i bought a 850W.

I'll try later and will see if it solves all.

Thank you.

I forgot to update. Yes now it works fine.

Thanks for your support.
