ATI 4250 updated with Win7 x86 Catalyst 13.9 is causing "GTA San Andreas" & "Splash Pro EX" to freeze to Black Screen, have to restart the computer.
This is a REGRESSION.
But this 13.9 update has resolved "Angry Birds Star Wars II" from freezing/hanging.
Note: Angry Birds Star Wars II freezing/hanging didn't completely disabled the desktop, and the machine would continue to work after forcing the game to be terminated, but not in the case of GTA San Andreas & Splash Pro Ex, machine needs to be hard rebooted again.
UPDATE: Please ignore this for now, think this issue happened because I had enabled extreme option for gpu in Asus motherboard Bios, I think this enabled overclocking of the 4250 gpu & made it unstable under stress. I have now set it to Auto. For now Splash Ex isn't crashing the computer, & I also tried Gta & it also isn't causing any trouble. I'm sorry for this false alarm & would report this issue as resolved for now, thanks.
