"VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands"

this problem aint new... but cant find a thread that has the same graphic card as i do... so id like to post my word out... heres my specs...


Intel Core 2 Dou 2.8ghz
Asus P5KPL-SE
Sapphire Radeon HD4670 1GB DDR3 (which i bought like 12 hours ago)
2GB RAM
and a generic PSU

i only have 4 games installed in my PC

L4D <---- gives the error right when the game has loaded... after i meet some few zombies then poof! theres the error

Assassin's Creed <--- runs smoothly

Prototype <--- gets the error but not all the time

Warcraft TFT <--- runs great since it doesnt need high end graphic cards...


so ive encountered the error mostly when i play L4D

as i said aboved i was observing the Gcard for 12 hours

does anybody have any solution? wats the use of a good graphic card if u cant play all games right?

did you install the drivers from the disk that came with the card? or have you gone to the manufacturer's website to download the newest version?

if you just ran the disk to get the drivers for the card then you should go ahead and download the newest version from the manufacturer...people tend to forget that products can sit on a shelf for months or years before you buy it...so the driver on the disk is most likely outdated

This error is normally caused by a duff graphics card.
Take it back to where you bought it from.
