I have problem with my Saphire Radeon 9200 128MB RAM AGP 8x with standard cooling.
My PC config is:
- Mainboard: VIA P4PB 400-FL (with updated BIOS)
- CPU: Celeron 2000 (~2200 MHz overclocked)
- 512MB 333MHz DDR RAM
And when I playing Quake 3 or IL 2 Sturmovik (both OpenGL games) then the VPU Recovery resets my GPU and I must restart my computer. I have Windows XP with Service Pack 1 and all available updates, and I have also the latest Catalyst 4.1 Drivers.
This problem doesn’t occurs in Direct3D games (for example Unreal Tournament 2003).
Is this a hardware problem or only sofware?
Do you have the latest VIA 4-in-1 update?
Is this crash occuring after playing for a while or immediate?
Have you tried opening the case and putting a fan blowing right into the case? (This tests for possible heat problems)

Does that still happen if you dont overclock?
However you could also try to do the following, go to:
and disable Fastwrites, if that doesnt help try lowering your AGP speed until the problem goes away.
There are kown problems with VIA chipsets and ATI cards.
