New video card -> Random freezes and "Sync. out of range"

I just installed a new video card (HIS ATI Radeon X1300 Turbo IceQ), my previous card was an ATI Radeon 9500. I had no problem upon upgrading, everything went smoothly. I also installed the new ATI drivers (with the catalyst control center).

Now, the problem is that at random times (mostly when I'm browsing the net), the computer either freezes so that I have to restart it, OR the monitor blacks out and displays "Sync. Out of Range".

My current desktop settings are 1024x768 at 70Hz.

Any ideas would be very appreciated.

That is usually a problem with a resolution or refresh rate set that your monitor will not handle. What type monitor do you have, try setting your refresh down to 60.

I haven't changed the resolution or the refresh rate since I installed the new video card (and I never had this problem with my old video card), in fact, I even turned it down from 75Hz to 70Hz and it hasn't solved the problem :/
