According to this tip at the ATI/AMD site, it appears that VPU Recover might have saved you from a severe crash.

I'm not even going to begin trying to figure out this troubleshooting article called Ati Radeon VPU Recover. However, the instructions here make it clear that you need to be very careful about doing anything. I'd suggest reading through the whole article before messing with this issue. Heck, I don't even know if the advice in the article is correct, come to think of it.

Hopefully someone who knows a lot more than I do will come by and help you out.

Good luck!

Well...what ATI card/chip is installed and in question?

System model/manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer/model info would be useful.

I guess I don't see any "error", just an adjustment made automatically by some ATI software.

Since we are talking video, I would have to assume :thumbsup:...that one of two things happened: Your video card was overworked and started to overheat or yur drivers are not the best ones you can use.

We need more info, I think.

I use to get a very similar vpu recover message after playing 3d games. The problem was my ram was bad. I would first check if your graphics card is overheating, updating your drivers, and looking up other info online.
