Screen Goes blank..

Jun 16, 2007
  1. Well I installed the new drivers about 2 weeks ago, and everything has been fine, until today

    The screen went black and then returned to a kinda blurry image and then i had a pop up saying that ATI used VPU recover so that my VGA settings are returned to normal... and the last time i happened the screen went blank, SO i restarted the computer but then I had to change to the internal/ in built VGA, and all my drivers were gone... Haven't changed any Options since I installed the drivers ( which has been working perfectly until now )

    Video Card: ATI Radeon 9250 128 mb (gigabyte)

    Mobo: Asrock p4i45GV r5.0 R5.0&s=

    Memory: 512mb

    Processor: Intel 2ghz processor

    A problem could have occurred and your system reset all drivers which would make your card not function, make sure your resolution isnt set too high for your monitor. Go into device manager uninstall any drivers listed, if none are present reinstall for your vga, again afterwards check your resolution through your os.

    I removed the Cmos Battery, and now i get into windows and the drivers are now installed.. I'm gonna wait to see if i get anymore of this trouble if not , i hope its gone..

    And I think my resolution has nothing to do with it, and btw another strange thing just happened my ATI Catalyst just died for no reason and so did my Gigabyte Utility..
