Half Life 2 Episode 1

I have the above card, which HL2 recommended me to get the latest driver for. Did that, and updated to DirectX 10... and now HL2 crashes whenever I try to launch it - citing exception error 0xc0000005 in the error report. I have completed the direct draw and direct 3d 7,8 and 9 tests with no problems using run-> dxdiag. Help!

My AMD raedeon 6870 is showing up green pixels/artifacts because the idle clock speed is too low can you help with making the idle speed of the of the card higher.

the best ways of making a Graphic card is
1-updating it's drivers and directx weekly.
2- update your bios with latest updates.
3- update the CHIPSET DRIVER of your motherboard.
you can download latest driver and directx from here:
(for vista and windows7)
(for windows xp)

version 11 (for windows7 and vista)
version 9 (for all windows types)

You did the right thing just not in the correct order. Did you update windows? You'll need .Netframwork 2.0, do not skip lower versions of .Net framework & download & install 1 at a time with a restart inbetween even if windows does not say you need to restart. The link below will take you to ATI's latest driver updates. After you download & save to disk. You'll need to uninstall any other version that reside in Add/Remove programs.

DirectX 8.0!?

The card itself does support directx 9. Make sure you are fully updated to the latest version of direct x and using an updated driver.. The fx5200 isn't a very powerful card, though it can support dx9 functions it won't be doing them very fast. As long as you can play a directx 9 game I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Game graphical error

Wierd, I had this problem once, updating my driver simply fixed it. Do this: 1) Remove all nvidia products and drivers from your computer. 2) Reboot computer of course. 3) Go to Nvidi'as website and download the correct latest driver for your graphics card. 4) Reboot again. 5) Go test the game.
