ATI 9800 Pro Graphics problem

I have three week Old Evesham 3000+ TD2 running XP Pro.

My Graphic card has suddenly started to freeze the system just prior to shutting down needing a reset to get going again.

Error message:

Computer re-started after an unexpected shutdown, Microsoft windows detected a possible device failure.

The driver for the display device was unable to complete the drawing operation.
Radion 9800 Pro.

Tried system restore, no good.

I already had the latest driver, I uninstalled and reverted to the driver that came with the machine, no good.

I reduced acceleration, no good.

I think the card is faulty (why does these things alwayss happen at weekends?) and will ring Evesham on monday.

Just want confirmation that I am on the right track.
