Default Getting VPU issues with Saphire X600 XT PCIe

Hello

I built a new system for a friend and I am having issues with what I think is the GFX card .

The main specs are

128MB Sapphire RX600XT PCIe ViVo Lite
CPU Intel P4 S775 BOX 3000 MHZ Prescott
HDD SATA 120GB Maxtor 6Y120M0 8MB
DVDR IDE NEC ND-2510A Dual
DDR PC400 1024MB TwinMOS Twister Dualkit
Enermax Coolergiant 430W
ATX S775 Abit AG8 Third Eye PCIe

Windows XP Home SP1
DX 9c
CAT's 4.11 / 4.9

Whats happening is intermittant but basically he can play his games etc , browse the internet and all of a sudden it comes up with an error saying that the Video Accelerator is not responding to the driver etc and it reverts to software mode . This can happen both ingame or general usage .

I have tried reinstallng the Catalyst 4.11 and also today we tried the 4.9's but it happened again .

Anyone any experience on this ? If we disable the VPU recover option, and the gfx crash occurs, his screen goes nuts and he has to reboot .

Lastly , with the 4.11 he had the overdrive tab, but with the 4.9's he doesnt . I thought the 4.9's supported the XT series ?

Appreciate any help

You need 4.11 to have overdrive in X600XT. Also try out the 4.12b.

Has he run FlashMenu and upgraded to the latest BIOS (I beieve 1.17)? It fixes a lot of issues with video cards, early versions of this board would often have to be booted with a PCI card, BIOS flashed then have Windows installed. There is also a newer version of the uGuru suite than what was on the CD, only about 3 weeks old and newer sound drivers as well. I'd personally do a BIOS flash, sound drivers and then uGuru, then uninstall the Cats and re-install them.
