  1. Welcome to the forum!

    I suggest you download the latest driver to give it a try. Your are using an AGP card right?

    For agp:
    http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/CatalystAGPHotfix.aspx

    If it is not, then-

    For pci-e:
    http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx

    and select your driver
  2. whats a agp card?
  3. how would i know which 1 it is?
    i found that it freezes when opening media players or when i try to activate the aero theme or when i go on the catalyst on the 3d config it freezes too???
