Is this problem occurring with other games too?
I was having a similar problem where my screen would lock up (with every game though), the message I was receiving was something about CCC having to restore my VPU recover, but the game still screwed up and I would have to restart my computer. I tried many things, and nothing fixed the problem
. So I RMA'ed my card and am hoping to get it back functioning correctly. Hopefully nothing like this is happening to you.
Could you try the card and the game in another computer? Also have you tried the popular Omega drivers? I don't ahve the website, but I bet you could easily find it by googling it. Hope this helps!
