I have Radeon 9250 128mb AGP. It is set at 4x, would setting this lower fix
anything?

Something about 'infinite loops' and 'atidvag.dll' causing problems. This is
a new video card, maybe a month if that, and just had this problem now. Heat
is not a problem as I run an external fan over my motherboard which cools it
at a save level. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers multiple
times. I updated to the latest drivers from the website

Chris, I had the same problem with my new Radeon card. I thought I was
being clever by downloading the driver from the internet upon
installation. In desperation, I tried the one that came with my card
and I havent seen that error again. YMMV, but it couldnt hurt to try it.
