This has always happened to me every time I use an ATi card. This mostly happens to me when I play games on the HL2 engine.
I used to have an X700 pro, but I kept on freezing over and over and sometimes get the BSOD with the error:
"ATI2DVAG.dll was stuck in infinite loop" than im forced to reboot. Hard drive starts dumping cache, etc.
So I decided to get an X1900GT, because my old card started to show its age. But low and behold, 2 hours into the game...I froze. I can't tell you how frustrated I am because I thought this demon was gone.
Overheating isnt the issue, my computer always stays under 40 C. But when I run ATi Tool's 3D view to warm up the card, it stabilizes at 70 C, so that could be a problem.
I'm running everything on stock right now, no OC, here is my rig:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13 GHz)
MSI motherboard (945P Neo3)
1 GB Kingston value ram (667 MHz)
Sapphire ATi X1900GT
510W Power Supply
DVD-RW Drive, CD-RW Drive
I don't know what to do, and I'm desperate for answers, can anyone help me?
