Well... here I thought it was fixed, but it just happened twice in starcraft 2, anyone has an idea to fix this or it's my computer piece that aren't working properly.

So out of all the suggestions - what did you do?

Ati 10.8 drivers are out now (yesterday) and I know they did an interim fix on one of the starcraft games - coz others were discussing the problems!

I'll install the 10.8 drivers and will test it out, however this problem doesn't occur only in starcraft 2, but we will see !

And about this: "In your bios - instead of 'Auto-detecting' memory voltage/timings try entering the correct ones manually."

I haven't tried it yet, I have no idea where this is in the bios nor how to know my memory voltage and such, but I'll find out about it and try it out.

edit: Well with 10.8 I was just browsing for custom game in Starcraft 2 and it happened again, as for the memory voltage/timing I couldn't find it, but I'll look more into it later.

Actually you're going in the wrong way to find a solution to my problem, it happened in way too many different games ( and youtube, watching video ! ) just to be a "game setting dislikes". I've read many many forum about it but yet no REAL solution was found to this... Problem could be related from heat/broken videocard/broken motherboard/etc... I simply can't send an email to every company saying it could be the cause of any parts... From what I've also seen, the problem not only happened to ATI user, Nvidia and Vista users are also affected.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

Hello All First Time Here, Hey Knetog Im having the same Problems that you are Having, heres how it Started. I have been using Windows XP 32 on this Rig that I built for about a Year now and Have been playing Bad Company 2 with no problems. I had some exrty cash so I got Windows 7 Home and a XFX 5770 Card and Installed the 10.7 Drivers for it last weekend. Everything loaded good even the Catilyst control center . Installed the Game and soon after I started playing it would Crash to Desktop. I then noticed that I would get this Error on the Desktop saying Display Drivers have stopped responding and now have Recovered. I tried other Drivers and still got the same error , So I went back to the my Nvida 9800gtx card But the Game would still crash but no more error . On Monday I talk to XFX and I was told to install KB961894 I did a Complete New Install of Windows 7 and the ati card along with the patch. This Time I could not open the ATI Control center or CCC I could see it but could not open it. . So I called them back to ask why as I was talking to another man telling Him what I had been doing. This Guy started asking if I overclock and what my Ram Voltage was. I told him 1.80 and again same error would pop up I told Him what had just Happen and he just stopped Died in his tracks and told me to RMA it back it was bad.So youre not alone on this. My Friend has the same MOBO and OS as me , but a Shaphire card and defferent Ram and says it runs like a Champ. So Im lost on this one too. And Now Windows 7 lock up on me after a restart would not let me type in password I well do a post on that one to

Win 7 64bit

just a side note, may be irrelivant but have you considered the hard drive. Those so called "green" HDD's only spin at about 5400rpm and are WAY too slow for anything performance related, thay can't keep up. I used one on my stepfathers build and have had many problems including slow boot times etc (i even got the 64mb cache). I think they are really ment for add-on storage and not for a boot drives. It could be causing the "lag" you speak of, maybe not?? Worth looking into. There's a few articles around just do a google search, many people not happy with those drives.

good luck

If the crashes just happen @ maximum strain on the pc ie using a data intensive game - I would also check out the power supply!

Need minimum 450w and not all psu units deliver the same punch.

If it's just one 'new' game then it's prob. crap programming/driver that needs to be sorted.

I have noticed many problems with these newer/latest games that require you to be connected to the internet!
