seems to be a problem with abit mobos, cause i had lockups too with the 81.85 drivers (abit is7, gigabyte 6800gt), but for me the 81.87 betas solved the problem
maybe its worth a try for you.

I'm itching to play Far Cry with HDR and AA enabled, but it looks like I'll have to wait. I haven't tried the 81.87 betas, but I doubt that they will resolve the issue. I usually disable system restore, but after my latest reformat, I must have forgotten, which was a stroke of luck, as it took me only a couple of hours of screwing around to get everything working again.
Hopefully the 8200 series will resolve this issue in the not too distant future.
