So just last night I wanted to install the ATI 10.4 Driver to update my system from ATI Driver 10.3 and I notice a lot of issues.
Well lets start off with the basic and common fact of a computer freezing up on me. Yes, each time I will play Batman: Arkham Asylum within 20 minutes of playing the game or other game like Resident Evil 5 at time as well but not as much as Batman.
It will freeze just for a moment and then freeze the computer completed. Doesn't that suck while you're in a middle of a gameplay? I'd believe So if I must say but then I try to see if my Overclock was the factor here but that clearly wasn't the issue either. Then I want to see one thing first and what I've done was restart the computer and reset the BIOS to Default settings stock. So I boot the system up and then playing the game again for about 20 to 22 minutes the game freeze up on me for a third time and then I knew all along that the Driver for the ATI 5000 Series was causing the issues with the game.
The best thing I've done was to un-installed the 10.4 and restart and re-install 10.3 Driver from ATI. (Not 10.3a or 10.3b Drivers)

Now I restarted the system again and go to my BIOS and load my save O.C settings and right away when I started to Play Batman: Arkham Asylum that there isn't any issues for over 40 minutes. Well point of this story is if anyone out there is having some 10.4 driver issues then I will roll back a Driver to 10.3
Now the system is not freezing , by the way is was also freezing while watching videos online.

Sometimes, the latest driver aren't stable, it might better with the older one...
So if you are fine with 10.3 then continue it. :)

Oh I am 100% fine with Driver 10.3 and it stable but hat 10.4 I heard and have been reading that there for so many issues with that driver.
