You can see if the new 5.10 drivers do anything or look for the VPU recover option and change it

My Computer too also crashes when the graphics get involved. I believe that my ATI Radeon 9600 256 Doesn't like Direct X 9.0© It works well with (B), But not ©. That's why my comp crashes.

Direct X 9.0b and 9.0c are two different versions of the software. Different versions have fixes that address problems of compatibility and such with other software and hardware. So updating to Direct X 9.0b as bupster suggested may fix your problem

From what i know, 9.0c is the newest version from microsoft. However, This is kinda like a gunea pig test. It hasn't been bundled with any new games yet either. This should help. Also, I have Hitman: Contracts for PC and it cam with 9.0b, so i can verify that it is a very well working version of directX.

Did you uninstall the previous drivers before installing the new ones?

DirectX 9.0c is being bundled with games, two of them being F.E.A.R and Serious Sam 2.

Sorry about that. My gfault. But if you get the most recent DirectX 9.0c Update End-User Time It should work just fine. I have recently downloaded it to my computer and it is now working just fine.

hmmm didn't solve it. Could it be a BIOS problem?

The games that are messing up:

CS/DoD 1.6
Guild Wars (though rarely)
Roller Coaster Tycoon 3
Sims 2 w/ university (Also Rarely)
