Hi Kong,

This could be an issue with your video card drivers. You can download the
latest version from the manufacturer, in your case AMD (ATI are now part of
AMD). If possible, make sure that they are WHQL certified.

well it may be lack of ddrs ram have you check the reqiuered specs.says it
only uses 40-45 watts so not an cpu prob. i read that some are haveing
overclocking isses too.and be sure your vents for cooling are clean and open.
