VPU Recover randomly occurs on Acer M420 with onboard radeon
Posted on 2009-04-17
I have an Acer M420, with onboard Radeon graphics, XP Pro SP3, 1GB memory.
It randomly gives a VPU recovery, blanking the screen and then carrying on as if nothing was wrong. I have updated the Catalyst driver.
The odd thing is that the pc will run some days for hours with no problems, then on another day it will repeatedly give the VPU recover error.
It often seems to be just after loading ie7 but other times it can happen when the pc is apparently idle. I don't run any games or 3d apps, so don't seem to have anything which would stress the graphics chip.
Any ideas to diagnose tjis greatly appreciated
