Graphics freeze in game

I've recently bought a motherboard bundle from Novatech (Order Code MBB-X28IG) which comes preinstalled with an AMD XP 2800 processor.
I've attached a Radeon 9600 graphics card (which has 256 Mb of 128-bit DDR RAM on it) and installed the drivers that came with the card.

I've now tried to play "Call of Duty" which plays OK for a while but now, having gone a couple of stages in the game, it freezes and I get this message:

VPU Recovery has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands.

Does anyone have any suggestions as how to proceed?

Have you downloaded the lastest ATI driver!

you could try a newer driver, the ones that come with the card are often out of date. Remember to uninstall the old drivers before installing the new. The forums at guru3d.com have information on how to do this and you can see what other drivers people have tried.

I'll try the latest driver and see if it makes any difference.
From the website I notice something called Catalyst - is this soemthing I need?

are what the ATi drivers are known as.

Catalyst is a software package that includes the drivers and control panels for various ATI cards, it will detect your hardware and only install the relevant stuff. It may be a good idea to check for the latest motherboard drivers while you are at it.
