For some time now I have been plagued by the drivers crashing (no pun intended). I play games fairly regularly and I consistantly crash in-game maybe 15 minutes in to age of empires 3. Other games such as counter-strike and dota i dont crash that often but with certain games it just refuses to work. I updated both my chipset and graphics drivers but neither of those would fix my problem. I changed my ati graphics drivers to the omega drivers and that seemed to fix the problem for one game. Then i started turning off fast writes and vpu recovery, but the one thing that finally worked, and i havent crashed yet is turning from 8x agp to 4x. Now y in the world would my 8x garphics card have to be set to 4x in order to play games.
