Basic Computer Details:

Radeon 4870 x2
4gig Ram
Vista 32 Bit

Okay, so basically i reformatted my computer a few weeks ago and been having this issue ever since. It originally started with a BSOD on startup of a few games (none of which should have ANY trouble running) and originally they were all running fine at max specs with no issues. The BSOD error was atikmpag.sys and something to do with the display driver, etc. SO, from there I went back and redownloaded the drivers for the ATI card(s) and didnt get the BSOD anymore, however now when i start a game it will either load and wont play the video, and/or freeze before any video plays and just stops so I end up having to just turn the computer off as its completely and utterly frozen. No idea where to go from here, all of the drivers are showing up to date, etc.

Any helps appreciated.

Feel free to ask questions obviously, i'll jump through (almost) any hoop need be to fix this problem...

I actually just took that same step earlier and still had no luck. There's no BSOD anymore, but it still crashes and freezes and needs to be restarted.
