Doom3 (also Star Wars KOTOR and few other programs) still runs perfectly and hasn't posed any problems yet. Recently however, Half Life 2 (and CSS) has started crashing during the game (VERY often, usually after quicksave or quickload). I ran a system diagnostics test (the 'Crash Test' on the Steam site) and they told me that my display driver's drivers are out of date.
Sounds easy enough: just go on ATI and update the drivers. But when i tried to do this, i was prompted to download a verification tool and this tool told me that the updates cannot be downloaded for my machine? Now how can i update the drivers if i can't download them?
The drivers for the card are not available on ATI nor are they available on the Toshiba website. I'm a bit sketchy on 3rd party drivers...
I'm pretty sure that this is the issue as all my other system specs match the criteria for HL2.
