Not an expert here...have you tried a different power connection in your house, or if you have a UPS battery pack/ bypassing it...

You sure you have the lastest ATI driver??

U can download that errored dll here:

Have you contacted ATI tech support?

You should probably try a different video card.

Why would I download the errored dll? And yes, I'm sure I have downloaded the latest drivers.

Are there any known hardware conflicts with this setup?

Have you tried using your video card on anohter comptuer? Its likely that your video card may be a dud.

Dud? What exactly do you mean? I ordered from newegg... I dont think I would be able to, the only other computers in my house are a really compact 4 year old gateway and a pretty good laptop. Mine is the only one, and I wish I could test it with another graphics card.

Bump. I think its the ram, I'll explain below.

I opened up my computer while it was powered down and removed one stick of ram. I booted it up and tried playing half life 2. It took longer to get the error. I then opened the computer back up and switched the ram sticks inside. I booted it up again and played half life 2. It took less time, but still significantly more then with both sticks in to error up.

This seems to prove that it is the ram that is causing my problems. I wanted to know if anyone here has encountered this problem and if so tell me a good pair that will definitely work.
