Windows 7: BSOD randomly, and consistently within 10 minutes of startup

Also, right now, im using my onboard graphics which is literally working fine. No problems. I haven't had a bluescreen for like 2 hours using the onboard graphics (Which is funny because in the BIOS, I set it to only my graphics card, but the onboard graphics are working because those are what i plugged it into). But for some reason, when i switched to primarily my GPU, my screen would literally not even show up. It wasn't that it was getting no signal, it just showed a literally black screen. I still heard the start up sounds, and I could tell that my computer was now "working," because I heard skype go off and what not, but literally, just a black screen.

Your graphic card sounds like a faulty one. Do you have a spare one to try? or a friend you can lend to check if its working okay with your computer?

Okay so I went into bios and I changed it to using only the pci express card (which is my GPU) instead of onboard, and instead of letting it do the switching thing, i set that to disabled. With those settings, the graphics card would not work AT ALL anymore and I would only get display with the monitor attached to the onboard. so as we speak, im using onboard graphics. ALSO, I havent had a SINGLE blue screen with onboard graphics.

But also, it doesnt seem to be a hardware error, because i downloaded and ran furmark on my GPU before I changed BIOS settings, and my GPU leveled out after 10 minutes and was fine. so... im thinking its either a problem with my internal hard drive, or my drivers...

Is the card factory overclocked or something?

Are all the parts of your computer compatible with each other? It would be helpful if you could lend a graphic card from a friend or neighbor and see how it works on your system.

Did you also get new hard drive?
