ok guys i have a 9800 xt saphire video card, and i cant seem to get it to work right.
when i play games that arnt even that much in the graphic area i will randomly stop and say you had a vitual faliur and it did a its own restart thingy, but after two or three times it just stays at a blank screen, and wont go out unless i hit alt f4 and restart the comp.
i previously had omega drivers for it but i thought that might be causing the problem so i switched back to my regular drivers that came with the card itself, i uninstalled them by using device manager and then reinstalled the new ones.

plz if any one has any ideas plz help

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Try cleaning the previous driver installation and starting fresh. First, go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). You said you already have the current driver, great. Now go to add/remove programs and remove the current driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver.
