Wounder if it will work for 4870s. I tend to get a grey/brown screen in some games. STO and even a 2D one like Fisdom do i but TF2, L4D and L4D2 have yet to nor has Spore.

Its kinda weird.

I hope they reveal what is causing some of these grey screens, as obviously many people never experience them. They only time I ever had one was when Crysis decided it wanted to run horribly on the carrier (and seemed to have a major memory leak).

Are you sure that wasn't just Crysis having a crisis.

It was, and I am sure it was all NVidia's fault.

:lol:  They were thinking of you when they built that bugginess into the code from what I've heard.

Very glad to find this thread, I have Radeon 5800 & Windows 7 and get grey screen at random moments, either I wait and computer will reboot after a short period or I have to remove power in order to be able to re-boot. I have now downloaded the hotfix and hope for improvement!

back when this was originally posted that request wasn't there. I doubt that the fix is still needed because of subsequent updates. If you still need it try google.
