ATI Display Driver not responding - Komus - 06-23-2013 12:53 PM

Hi,

Whenever I play a game on this emulator in about 5-30 minutes randomly, I get a freeze with no sound playing. 10 seconds later, the PC screen is entirely black for 1 second then the emulator screen is entirely black with a message in the task bar telling me that the ATI Display Driver stopped responding and has been restored.
When I close the emulator, a message tells me to wait for emuthread time out and the process is still there in the Task Manager.

Anyone have a clue for that ?

Using PPSSPP v.0.76-1564 x64, I'm on a laptop with :

*Windows 7 Professional Edition x64
*Intel Core i5 430M (2,26 GHz)
*4 GB RAM
*ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850M with 12.8 Catalyst drivers

I'm sorry if I posted this on the wrong forum I didn't see any technical problems sub-forum.

Have you overclocked your GPU? That happens to me when I overclocked my card too much so basically that's become unstable and driver restores back it's stock speed.

No I don't touch that stuff on my laptop, and my grahpics card is not overheating at all.

Updating my drivers from 12.8 to 13.4 actually seemed to solve the problem. Could play for 2 hours without any crashes. Sorry for the concern.
