Go to ATI/AMD & download the latest driver package for your Radeon HD2400 video card. Download Catalyst Software Suite
File Size 35.2MB. Date Posted Apr. 16, 2008

If there are still problem while playing the game. Lower the games graphics settings. or move up to the 512MB card.

Hi caeggleston,

"every time I try to run any PC game I have" Running the games before, do you encounter the same problem you posted. If not there's a problem, have you read the system requirements of the game your playing before installing, unless its a mini game like book of worm etc. but most game now a days requires a decent video card considering you're using a AGP video card. try to run 3D Mark 2003, 3D Mark 2006 or FurMark (for stability) if there's no problem with the card it should stand the stress test or just a simple test. If you see garbled image during testing, your video card have problems consider replacing them.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a look in "Control Panel", "system" "hardware" and find out which ATI graphics hardware you have. When you have that information, go to and download the latest drivers for the gfx hardware in your system. If asked, select AGP not PCI-e as these don't mix well and will cause instability (like the problem you are having now) Install the software answering "yes" to any questions you are asked and this should fix your problem. If the problem continues, you will probably need a new graphics card.
Good luck.

Vpu recover

How do you know your motherboard is for ati.

The vpu is like a processor for a computer but it runs the video card.

Are you sure you loaded the right drivers for your operating, are you sure the card can run on your system.

This error suggest the wrong drivers are installed or it can't run on your system.

You can enter your bios and try to turn off vpu recover and clock down agp to 4x

Read the system spec for the card and make sure you have them.

Then see if you have the vpu in your bios, make sure you have the right drivers, post back if your sure you have everything right, but still have a problem.

Post the brand of motherboard and model.

Screen goes blank for a few seconds, i get an error from vpu rec.


I'm sorry the video card has a hardware problem, have you overclocked it?

the card froze and stoped responding to the commands from the driver. so it had to reset.

This can happen if the card is damaged, by overclock, or the clocks are too high, voltage too low or too high, this is all related to overclocking.

But this can also be caused by overheating.

Has it just started doing it?

if so have you changed/installed anything?

Check the actual card to make sure the fan is still spinning on it

other than that check the caps on the card make sure they are not blown...

VPU Graphic Accel. Error

if you can reach the setup of the game before the screen freezes, go to the games setup and configure the video or graphic setup to match your graphic card or if this does not work do this 2nd solution. check for an updated driver of your graphic card and make sure you have a directX 9.0c
