BSOD Help needed!

Ok so I bought this new computer for Christmas and I've been have BSOD problems, it happens randomly and is extremely frustrating. I've tried re-installing windows 7 and updating all drivers but nothing seems to help. I have also used memtest and found no errors.

Memory exception caused by your video driver

run memtest

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.


re-install video driver

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Thanks for the reply, I'm gonna try re-installing the drivers as I have already ran memtest w/o getting any errors.
