It takes a system alot faster than yours to run FEAR on high settings mines is a good bit faster than your and it will barely manage it.

Sounds like you might have a bit of a temperature problem, you might try checking your temps in bios and on the video card usihng ati tool or riva tuner. Also giving the PC a clean would be advisable.

I am aware I can run it on Medium fine though, I have looked and my temp is 39 stable and GPU I cannot check the temp of, I went to a friends who has almost the Esact system apart from he has a Geforce 6200, it resets on this system also....hmmmmmmm

(GPU) recovery enabled :tazz:

You could go with GPU recovery off because that can cause what you are experiencing

Also make sure you have the latest drivers from ATI installed and reinstall the latest .net framework, radeons can have a myriad of problems if there is something even slightly wrong with the .net framework, you can use ATI tool to check gfx temps.
