Anytime i play a game, end it to do ...whatever.... and later restart the game, I crash to the desktop. I reboot...and I can play as long as I like.... but only once. I have the newest radeon driver, and have actually had this problem with all kinds of drivers, and even tried some of omegas drivers.
Any help appreciated thanks.

It's not that I don't want to help, I just don't have a me it seems like it would be a video driver issue. But it seems that you have already tested this with multiple driver versions. What about a BIOS update?

I had the same set-up as you and the same problem also. In order to correct this problem I found that I had to replace the 1.4tbird with an xp processor. Once this was done I had no other problems. I called/emailed ECS and AMD to no avail, they told me there was no known conflict, they were wrong. After surfing the web and nearly pulling my hair out, I came to the conclusion that I need to just try a new processor. Good luck
