    I just upgraded my computer. After having several problems with installation of windows, It would crash after I would try to install anything...After I figured that out...I tried running 3dmark2k1 and my Radeon 8500 would crash on the Nature test. It didn't do that on my previous system. Any help would be appreciated.

    MSI KT4VL
    512 Corsair DDR 400
    ATi Radeon 8500 64MB DDR
    Western Digital 80GB HD w/ 8MB Buffer
    Sound Blaster Live! Value

    What Cat Drivers are you using for the 8500?
    You may want to try out 2.5 and 3.0
