6850 Blackout?

Hey, guys, I have recently bought a computer from Chillblast, the service was excellent, however I'm having issues with, while watching a video, rarely, the computer screen blacks out and I cant do anything. I use the reset button on the PC to restart my computer. What is the cause of this problem? The Graphics card drivers? As I have heard while the graphics card is good, there are problems with the drivers.

My graphics card is an Asus 6850 and im pretty sure I have updated to the latest drivers from Windows Update.

Thanks Kevin

According to the Asus site Click Here the latest driver is 8.861 or you could go the AMD website.

As this is a recent purchase have you contacted Chillblast about your problem?
