You have a quantum singularity inside your computer. This is very bad.

See if you can hijack a chinese space vehicle and launch it into the sun, or the entire solar system will be swallowed up by it within 72 hours.

Seriously though, I have no frickin idea what could cause that. Report it on the Rage3d.com forums, maybe somebody there could help.

Radeon 9500 (hardmodded to PRO, o/c to 322/322)
AMD AthlonXP 2400+ (o/c to 2600+ with 143 fsb)

I had the same problem back in may, I called ATI tech support and they said to turn off apg fast writes, which fixed my problem, and seeing as it doesn't give any performance increase at all. It really doesn't matter that you turn it off
