Ati radeon 9550/x1050 series problem

  1. Hey all, let me get down to the point. Lately my steam games (Insurgency, TF2, and ZPS) have been acting up. When I play them, I can usually play 5-15 mins, but then, my character or camera freezes up, like you're being disconnected. However, I can still hear people chatting and hear the game going and see damage indicators. It doesn't go away though, so I have to disconnect. Afterwards, I cannot rejoin that same server--the connection fails. I either have to rejoin another server completely, wait a bit, or restart said game. I've been trying everything possible I could think of to fix it. I uninstalled some programs I got around the time this started happening, completely uninstalled steam and its associated programs, antispyware and antivirus scanned, and updated my gfx card drivers. Can anyone help me?

    It's a really frustrating problem and make its hard for me to do my job and have fun.

    Some tech. help would be greatly appreciate as I do not have the money to have it looked at professionally. Thanks a bunch in advance.

    Person has intel penitum 4 cpu 2.8 ghz, 510 mb ram
    Also, as a side note, my Heroes III game worked fine, if this helps specify the problem. I have yet to test out my other games, but as soon as I do, I'll update this post or post again with any new information. Thrice you people have my thanks. :mrgreen:
