here is my setup

Intel i5 670 cpu
Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 oc video card

nothing is overclocked

when I run resident evil it gives me the option to choose to run directx9 or 10

when I run 10...nine times out of ten the game freezes about 10 seconds into gameplay.

What causes this?

My temperatures are fine.

Does your game freeze or your whole computer crash?

Well I am new to pc gaming so I don't have many games. The only game I have played is warframe off of steam and that played without any problems, and then resident evil (which I have on a disc)

the directx9 version of resident evil (when you choose right at the beginning) worked without freezing, but when I run the directx10 version, it usually freezes.

I was able to play it once without it freezing, but every other time it did.

Im sure, when I got the card I went to the amd website and installed the drivers/catalyst for the card and that was only like a couple weeks ago.

Now, google is showing that a directx10 crash problem with this game may be common and a certain windows update will prob need to be uninstalled.

several hits came up when I googled this problem.
