Drivers or card crash?


I just built a computer, everything works fine except for the video card. I have a powercolor 3850 agp with hotfix 8.8 drivers installed. Fallout 3 works perfectly, with maybe one crash with a days worth of play. However, World in Conflict crashes everytime, with a black screen and audio still playing, then about half the time it says "reloading resources, please wait" and then it works after about a minute, and half the time it never comes back. This is also the same for flight simulator 9. Turning the settings to lowest does nothing.

    I'm happy to say that I fixed it! All I had to do was turn agp auto calibration 3.0 off in bios and it works. Sorry for not posting that before.
