Windows 7: Video Card BSOD??

Video Card BSOD??


On saturday I was playing a videogame and suddenly I got a Blue screen. I cleaned up the registry, and thought that it was a one time only problem. But yesterday I got it again. I rebooted my PC, and after 2 minutes, I got another BSOD, then another, and another, with different Error messages, all pointing to ntoskrnl.exe. I read that it could have been a driver problem, so I formated my drive, and reinstalled Win 7 x64.

2 minutes on my new clean system, and bam! another blue screen. And it kept on happening. So I removed some drives, ran memtest, did a chkdsk, did an OS check, and neither had a single error. Then, I removed my Video card (HD6850), and connected through the onboard card... No more Blue screen. I thought that it could be the card, but I tried it in other computer and it gave me no problem. I even tested with another graphics card on my computer, and the Blue screens came back

So right now I'm thinking, Could it be the MotherBoard pci-e socket that it's bad? Or maybe my PSU wasnt enough (Its a 350w PSU, and my video card needs something around this, or more).

So right now I'm on a budget, and I wanted to know, Could it be that if I change my PSU for a good one, and with vast power, that my PC stops showing up these errors? Keep in mind that the other card that I tested needs much less than my actual PSU, and I ran with no problems before. Or what else can I do? Any help would be MUCH appreciated
