ATI 4850 drivers crashing windows Vista
Posted on 2008-10-24
I have a computer running windows vista that continually crashes when putting the graphics card under any kind of load or after about 10 minutes of use.
I have tried every type of ATI 4850 drivers I can find and I am currently using 8.10.
I have tried both Vista 64bit and 32bit but still has the same issues. I have tried locking the GPU speed as this is apparently a possible issue. I have updated chipset drivers and flashed the BIOS as there was a VGA update fix. It always crashes when running the windows experience index at the testing CPU stage. This is a brand new machine. I have checked the temperatures of the components and all are operating at normal temperatures. Currently using a GA-EP45-DS3L motherboard and a Intel E8400 CPU with a Sata hard drive.
