Basicly when ever i play a game in full screen it crashes when i click on something. when it crashes first the screen goes fuzzy i get lines and zigg zaggs buzzing across the screen then the screen just goes black and wont go back to normal i press ctrl alt delete but the screen just stays black i have tried unpolugging the screen but it doesnt help the only way i can fix it is to turn off and on my computer then it fixes it self. When opening age of empires i got a message saying. "This computer appears to have a 0 MB video card. If you wish to upgrade your computer, please contact your computer manufacturer for any necessary assistance.System information: 2600 MHz, 3072 MB, 0 MB (vendorID 1002, deviceID 7183)"
And when i opened up Counterstirke it said my video card is out of date but i have the latest driver installed.

apparently they dont make updates for my driver anymore all i get is this:
AMD has moved a number of DX9 ATI Radeon™ graphics accelerators products to a legacy driver support structure. This change impacts Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux distributions. AMD has moved to a legacy software support structure for these graphics accelerator products in an effort to better focus development resources on future products.
The following products have been moved to the legacy software support structure (including Mobile and All-in-Wonder Variants):
ATI Radeon 9500 Series
ATI Radeon 9550 Series
ATI Radeon 9600 Series
ATI Radeon 9700 Series
ATI Radeon 9800 Series
ATI Radeon X300 Series
ATI Radeon X550 Series
ATI Radeon X600 Series
ATI Radeon X700 Series
ATI Radeon X800 Series
ATI Radeon X850 Series
ATI Radeon X1050 Series
ATI Radeon X1300 Series <--------------------my one
ATI Radeon X1550 Series
ATI Radeon X1600 Series
ATI Radeon X1650 Series
ATI Radeon X1800 Series
ATI Radeon X1900 Series
ATI Radeon Xpress Series
ATI Radeon X1200 Series
ATI Radeon X1250 Series
ATI Radeon X2100 Series
AMD may periodically provide Windows XP and Windows Vista driver updates (for the products listed above) for critical fixes only. No new features will be provided in future driver updates. The Linux ATI Catalyst™ driver will only be supported in Linux distributions prior to February 2009 for the legacy products listed above.
Any customers using a combination of a ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 Series, ATI Radeon™ HD 3000 Series, or ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 Series product with any of the legacy products listed above in a single PC system must use the ATI Catalyst 9.3 or earlier driver. All future ATI Catalyst™ releases made available past the ATI Catalyst™ 9.3 release will not include support for the legacy products listed above or any of the features associated with those legacy products.

UPDATE: i got this from steam Hello James,

Your BIOS appears outdated (2/8/200). Please try updating it:

Title: Updating a Motherboard's BIOS and Chipset Drivers

Update (Flash) Your BIOS
The primary function of your system's BIOS is to recognize and initiate all of your system's hardware so it is ready to be used. "Flashing" the BIOS is synonymous with updating the motherboard's BIOS to the latest version. The often times requires a floppy drive to be installed on the system.

Please visit your motherboard manufacturer's website for instructions on how to check your BIOS version and for tools you can use to safely update your BIOS.

Update Your Chipset Drivers
Chipset drivers are responsible for controlling communication between various components in your system: the processor, the video card, the hard drives, PCI devices and system memory. Keeping these drivers up to date is important - especially if you are experiencing generally sluggish system performance.

Please visit your motherboard manufacturer's website to determine what type of chipset your motherboard has and where you can find the most recent drivers for it.

I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor I cant find any of the updates anywhere on the AMD website can someone link me?

AMD has nothing to do with it
We need to know the make and model number of the motherboard
Is this a retail computer?
What is the make and model number of the computer?

Just a note:

If you need older drivers for popular cards such as the ATi - check out Filehippo. All Catalyst Drivers contain the card drivers within. As the message you posted mentions, you need the older Catalyst drivers which you can get from here:
http://filehippo.com/search?q=ati

The BIOS update will be useless if this fault has only just occured. You never mentioned if it used to work!

Some Graphics Cards can't cope with the refresh rates the games demand giving the output you describe.

Dont Re-Flash the BIOS if it used to work on other games! A bad Re-Flash will kill your computer!
