I’ve been having a really annoying problem with gmod. My Video card crashes(screen goes black with white bands of static) when ever i generate spawn icons(it wont generate 1 icon), take screen-shots(any game), or use fraps(whenever i record). this also happens in in other games too, but the card seems to recover, but in gmod it doesn’t. i can tell my system doesn’t crash because i can still hear sound(itunes). this basically has been happening ever since i installed Xp. none of this happens in vista.
Edit: i don’t think my video card is damaged becuase in vista it works fine, and my drivers are up to date (12/17/2009 the latest on the ati site)
