I had upgraded ATI's catalyst drivers from 5.4 (or 5.5) to 5.7 for my 
R9600SE video card under winxp sp2. In Chimera-1.2143 when I tried to 
create a surface representation or tried the surface benchmark the 
screen would go black (monitor led goes from green to orange) and the 
system would crash (no longer responds to pings).

Downgrading to catalyst 5.6 fixed the problem. I sent a trouble ticket 
to ATI. Has anyone had a similar problem with Radeon (non-firegl) cards?
