Right, I have uninstalled all ATI, and reinstalled latest as described. System recovery settings as you described Highroyds, but I still don't get a BSOD unfortunately. I've updated PB as well (although where the version number for it can be found, I am not sure, but I am running pweb daily recently). So I have tested earlier this evening, and an interesting thing happened - the game ran for 20 mins or so, and then black screened on me... I assumed the same as usual had happened, but the audio carried on and was not in a loop... and then the game recovered, but with a different graphics setting (screen size changed somewhat, and brightness had reduced)... I am guessing that the ATI VPU Recover system had actually managed to cope. So, good news... I left the game on, unattended (house decorating support work claiming most of my attention recently), but after approx another 30 minutes I returned to a black screen and locked machine. So it looks like either it was just a lucky recover, or maybe something has improved... but I am still basically in the situation that I can expect within an hour my machine to lockup while playing CoD UO... (and previously it has happened within seconds of startup). I am not keen on an XP re-install, unless it can be done in a way to minimise application disruption, and then only if there is a good case for it (other than it seems to be the only thing left). So I guess I'm still at the point of limited options I described before, although perhaps there is a way to get more information on the fault? EventVwr ACEEventLog has a bunch of items similar to this, if relevent: 06/03/2005 20:21:48 --- [Domain]: RT_GraphicsCaste.Caste --- [Type]: Error --- [ProcessID]: 1560 --- [ThreadName]: --- [Assembly]: CLI.Aspect.DeviceCRT.Graphics.Runtime, Version=1.1.1845.42933, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=90ba9c70f846762e --- [Namespace]: ATI.ACE.CLI.Aspect.DeviceCRT.Graphics.Runtime.RT_DeviceCRT --- [Method]: Parse --- [Message]: iDEMDriverSettings.GetCRTControllerSupportedResolution failed with status -6

A quick reminder to those following this: my machine and graphics card previously ran CoD UO for hours at a time, with a regular Windows uptime of 4 weeks during which there would have been several UO sessions a week... so all in all, about as stable a platform as most Windows users could ever boast. Btw it turns out I did have System Restore on, but since I neglected it the restore that would have helped isn't available in the calendar anymore (setting is at the max space which is I think 12% of disk), presumably the restore point (end of January) has been deleted. Thanks again for your help Highroyds, looks like I'm stuck with it.
