Computer Freezes when I change gamma in Hitman2

The title pretty much says it all.

I have a Sapphire Atlantis 9600 Pro video card with the latest 6.14.10.6387 driver (which I believe is the latest).  My OS is Windows XP Professional SP1.  Whenever I try to adjust the gamma settings in Hitman 2 (it is too bright), my entire system freezes.  I can't ctrl-alt-delte out of it.  I have to press the button to restart my machine.

Any ideas?

You need to give us more info of what your system is.  CPU, MB, chipset, how much cooling you have, things such as that.

Some similar problems were reported with cracked versions of different games. Is yours a cracked one or an original?
If that's the only context when you have such problems then I'd say my above statement is right. Anyway,  there are lots of thing that can generate this kind of behaviour.
AGP drivers for your motherboard, vid drivers (latest doesn't necessarily means the best), AGP aperture size  and mainly all BIOS settings that are video related.
However, I stand on my opinion.
