I get this same error on Vista 32 with a X1800XT. I have the card watercooled, and it rarely breaks 50C under full load. XP has no VPU recovery issues, but Vista will do it usually once or twice just using the desktop, and god forbid I try to play a game. That's apparently against the rules or something, because the VPU recovery events happen once every couple of minutes.

It's part of WDDM. http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device...m_timeout.mspx
Looks like if you set TdrLevel to 0, it should stop.
