Hook Error in FRAPS

I'm trying to run FRAPS in Windows 7 (64) but I keep getting this message:

"Hook Error - Fraps may not operate correctly ingame. You may need to reboot the computer."

Is this a video card problem? I have an ATI card (5770). I think there's something going on with this card because a few times I have come back to my system w/ an unresponsive blank screen. My computer still running but completely unresponsive.

List your PC specs, how could FRAPS know that the game might not run ingame.

Got a question, there are some forum posters who say that Sapphire radeon 5770 cards make a weird squeling noise when paired with a Corsair PSU, do you have that sort of problem? It involves the card reacting weirdly to voltage but since this is a game issue try reinstalling it.

I really just want to capture video and this is an easy way for me to do it. As far as the squealing goes, I might be experiencing that. It's not so much squealing but a buzz of some sort.

I've reinstalled Fraps a few different times as well as tried older versions. Are you saying reinstall the video card drivers?

Try, ATI has been known to break game compatability sometimes when they update Catalyst.
