Okey, I didn't know I was supposed to fill it in there. I posted it in my first post.

Filling it in now.

EDIT: This is going to take a while seeing as my mobile broadband connection here is awful (I have no access to any other internet from this place) so the .NET framework I have to download for the systemspecs thing is downloading too slow.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums.
To help us help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's how: System Info - See Your System Specs
Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built.

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.
Full instructions in the tutorial.

The specs are there now.

The problem with my PC is still the disply drivers crashing and getting restored while playing Battlefield 3. I have throughout this year swapped everything except my GPU and CPU. The problem persists.

Try these steps to install only the graphics driver.

1.Download the preferred driver and save it to the desktop.
2.Double click the installer and you will see a screen where it will be extracted to, change that to your desktop.
3.Open Device Manager through Control Panel.
4.Expand Display adapters and right click the name for yours and choose Update Driver\Browse my Computer. Select the driver folder you just saved on the desktop. Click Next.
5. Your system should say "Windows has successfully updated your driver software".

If you get a window saying you already have the most current driver, go back to step 4 and choose Uninstall Driver software instead. Then restart from step 3.

I tried this step and the problem persists.

I also never install the 3D-drivers, so when I install drivers normally I go and uncheck the 3D-drivers and stuff. If it has any significance

You can try using Driver Sweeper (link in my sig) to remove the driver, again, and reinstall as above and test. Also you could try using an older WHQL driver too, the one I am using is 295.73.

The dark spots on the CPU may indicate it has been overheated at some point. This could be caused by a number of things, Board, CPU, bent pins, poor power supply. What PSU do you have?

I have no faith in installing drivers. I've done this in a million different ways for a year soon. So I'm going to ship my GPU away within the week.

I've had the CPU since 2009 I think and I used the original CPU fan at first until I noticed that it could go up to 100 degrees at some points. I now have a NEW CPU fan. There is no overheating problem. So either it's something from that time (because I just have moved my CPU other than those two times I tried to RMA my motherboard) and either it's from then or it could be my PSU.

A poor PSU as in it's broken and gives off too much? It's a 850W something. I don't know what brand it is. But it was a good one. The recommended one by the store owner. And the store owner is a friend so he wouldn't recommend me shit. I changed it from a 650W due to my GPU eating too much power, and we thought 850 was enough. At least it was at the time because it stopped killing my harddrives.

I lost 3 harddrives due to the PSU not being adequate.

Too much information I assume, so I'll just say that I have a good brand 850W PSU. I could look up what it's called but I'd have to make phone calls home etc.

100C CPU temp is very high, it could be damaged and is showing up just now.

A poor PSU may not supply the rated power, deliver "dirty" power, not have active power factor correction, have more than one 12v rail, etc. Do you have this computer with you? You can get the make and model by removing the side panel.
