  1. In the last week I have just started getting windows crashes during games. So I am guessing it is graphic driver related but I'm not positive. having alot of problems with it, otherwise my comp runs fine. Posting dumps now. Thanks!

    They all point to ati3duag.dll which is part of your video drivers.

    From HERE

    a. Check for game patches:HERE

    b. Make sure you meet the game's minimum video and system requirements;

    c. Latest DirectX from: HERE

    d. Download the latest Catalyst driver for ATI. Win XP/2000: HERE

    The latest video drivers sometime don't work with a particular game.
    Try an older (WHQL) driver, or a Beta driver, or even an Omega driver instead:

    BETA Drivers: HERE OMEGA Drivers: HERE

    Downloaded the new drivers and havn't had a problem since. Thanks for your help! Sorry for the long response time but wanted to make sure it was running well, as it was an intermitant problem.
