OK no clue where to start. I have had a new comuter built for me. The guys great, but he can't seem to get the problem to happen while he has the computer. During games (so far only games) my screen will either freeze, go black, or give me an error message. When I can get my computer rebooted, sometimes it downloads the problem to Microsoft and then sends me to a screen that tells me there was a problem with my driver, but ATI has no solution for the problem. Is there anything I can do?

Would having all of my OLD files (I had to purchase a new hard drive) on the hard disk mess something up? The old files are All in a folder marked OLD files.

I am so lost. And to top it all off, I am not very savvy on the programming files and such. I kinda know where to look, but things have changed so fast, I can't keep up.

Please help!

First of all welcome to the forum!!! :thumbsup:

Sorry to hear about your problem. It would be handy to know the specification of your computer, if you are unsure ask your friend to detail what components are inside your comptuer, also what operating system do you have. (make and model of graphics card, processor, memory, etc) We can then get a better idea of what your problem is!!

Hope that gets you started :flowers:
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Further to what FireKracker said. If you get any error messages can you please copy down the entire message and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.
