Generally, I run it in a virtual desktop, but I've tried all the different settings in 'Graphics.' And the problems seem to be generally in online play. But running my own server will eventually crash too.

I am really starting to think that ATI may have something to do with this, still soyunds wierd.

Have you tried rolling back to your previous gfx drivers? Also, maybe you could go into CS.CZ settings and mess with drivers (choose 'Software'). Gfx will be ugly, but will allow you to test it.

Also try to run game in windowed-mode, that should help you with the problem of the mouse (I guess)

SSH is a good idea though, just type sshd in console, then type whatever they tell you to apt-get and it should be pronto, I myself ssh most of the time.

Do you have any DLL Overrides?
