I recently bought a ATI Sapphire Radeon 5570 1Gb graphics card from Amazon I received the card and put in my PC with no problems I booted it and installed the drivers off the disc then updated them through Windows. I turned the computer off that night thinking all was well until this happened...
The whole system has crashed whilst showing this. I jab the reset button and it boots up fine, but the card seems to run slow and unresponsive.
Here are my specs... Gigabyte P31-ES3G Motherboard Corsair XMS2 2 x 2GB 500GB Seagate barracuda Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz (STOCK)
Can anybody tell me if this is a hardware or software problem.
Thanks in advance.

I would try going back in time using the system restore point, too before you installed the update...if that works, then the drivers from MS might not be stable, I would then go to the ATI web site, and try too get updated drivers from them!! or you can use a program called... Slim drivers, I got it free from Cnet/downloads.com,I updated all my drivers that way without a problem it works like a charm!! It finds the drivers you need, downloads them and installs them too!! good luck!! :)
