If i got this right disabling FW solved your lockup problem? FW can cause instability- Never heard that it causes it in 2D mode but if it solved your problem i wouldn't think about it anymore. FW should be disabled anyways.
I can have em enabled with my card and they give me an incredible performance boost of a few points in 3dmark. Not worth the risk of having a crash in a game just at the moment when you forgot to save. I disabled them to be safe.
