Engine Error message in HL2:Episode One

Getting this message while game is loading to menu screen:

Engine Error

Internal driver error in IDirect3DDevice 9::Present ()

Then asks me to send to Microsoft. I can't get into game. However, I can play AA0.

I have a MSI 1900XTX that I just bought at the beginning of Sept. Also have a Gigabyte 965P-DS3 w/ a 6400. I have 6.9 Catalyst driver installed.

  1. I have received that error many times. The error just started occuring with one of the last updates that Valve released and I think it only affects newer ATI cards. The only solution I have found is to start up the game and change the resolution to 800 x 600. Once the game is up and running, I change the resolution back to what I normally play at. I know that is only a temporary fix, but it usually stops the error from coming up for a week or two.
