    Check the card fits well and is screwed down.
    Check you have plugged in a power connector to the HD2600
    Check the temperature of the card with riva tuner.
    Use your motherboard monitor to check temps and make sure you 12V is not dipping below 11.4V
    Find your BIOS versions and google them with "black screen" or "freeze"
    Find you MB ID and google it with "HD2600" or "black screen" or "freeze"

    Well while playing games my laptop kinda hit's 70C as speed fan ses.

    I got a cooler fan off ebay that might help but is there any tools that can speed up video card speeds.

    Could be a lot of things mate.

    Did you update your graphics drivers recently? If so, you might want to re-install them again and make sure to use a driver cleaner. You could have some corruption in that area.

    In fact, it just happened to me. I always use a driver cleaner and the one time I didn't my games like Bioshock and Call of Duty would just crash, completely shut down back to the desktop, freeze, etc.

    It might be some other things as well. See below.

    1. Everything Spathi has suggested.
    2. Re-install the latest ATI drivers using a driver cleaner. There's one available from this site.
    3. Are you overclocking? Make sure your overclock is stable using Orthos. Run it overnight if possible, however most errors will show up rather quickly.
    4. Check your RAM with Memtest86+. A couple of cycles should show up any errors.
    5. Re-install your sound drivers if all of the above fails, again, using a driver cleaner.
    6. Set GPU back to default speeds if you have it overclocked.
    7. Try a different card, if you have one , and see if that works.


    Also, are you using anything funky third-party apps. like Rivatuner? Have you made any low-level changes to anythin?
