Rage against my 5970...


Damn...I paid 750$ for this piece of ... and in TF2, every 4 or 5 min, the game freeze for 10 to 20 seconds. It is a weird bug. My player freeze but I could see the action continue in my screen but there is nothing I could do. Can't shoot or move. Everytime it happen, every time I get killed.
I played DOD:S, CS:S, Stalker: Clear Sky and I never encoutered this.

Is there something to do or my GPU hate my fav games, TF2?

Here some spec's of my Cpu maybe it could help.

you probably uninstalled your old drivers im assuming..but did you run a driver sweep i think its called. someone would know the exact name, but sweep your computer for any old junk from your old drivers.

my 5970 works perfectly with TF2 so its probably a driver issue.

If the previous suggestions dont work, try turning off Catalyst A.I. in CCC and running the game.



My comp is new. So I didn't unistall any old drivers. I have ATI Catalyst. How did I turn it off. I didn't see anything that could set it off.

Uninstall them first, though, and use Revo Uninstall, and then run Driver Sweeper in safe mode to clear out the remaining (if any) driver files.
Then get the latest drivers.
