It started after my GeForce 6800 graphics card screwed up and i had to switch to an ATI Radeon 9800 PRO. The ATI worked for my brother in his computer when he played CS:S, so I don't know why it would cause trouble in mine. But after starting up CS:S and joining a populated server (16-32 players), everything is ok for around 5-20 minutes, then out of nowhere my computer restarts and I get the "your computer has recovered from a serious error" message. I have researched for people who've had the same problem and how they solved it, but nothing seemed to be working for me. In "Startup and Recovery" I unchecked the box that says "automatically restart" so that I could see what the error was when it happened, but all it did was go to a blank blue screen. I also read about how you should uninstall the drivers for your old graphics card before installing the drivers for your new one, which I didn't do. After reading it though, I uninstalled the NVIDIA Drivers and reinstalled the ATI video drivers, but to no avail.
Here's what the Error Sign says:
