Windows 7: BSoD and Screen Resolution problem when Upgrading to new Graphics Card

BSoD and Screen Resolution problem when Upgrading to new Graphics Card

First of all, I apologize if I opened this thread in the wrong Section.

Onto the problem~

After installing War Thunder, I realized I needed to upgrade to a newer version of my Graphics card. So I opened Device Manager and went to upgrade the graphics driver, but said It's up to date, so I go to the AMD website ( I have a ATI Radeon HD Series Graphic card, which is supported by AMD ) to download a new one, I enter the correct information here which gives me this to which I download the first one, all's fine and dandy, but once I reboot, the Screen resolution is much bigger, and moments later I'd receive a BSoD. So is there anything I'm missing? Much appreciated

I've done as instructed and ran the SF diag tool, should I upload the zipped folder to pastebin/dropbox?

It is a stop 0x116, which is a graphics/display related BSOD. As you have installed the latest version (till date), we cannot blame the driver itself as the source of the issue before having some other tests done.

And BTW, WHQL 13.9 is also out there: AMD Catalyst

It Appears to be an old (3-4 years) branded desktop. What is the wattage of your PSU? Let us know. Are you using the stock PSU?
Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Alrighty,

Here is the screenshot of Speccy after a few hours.

And heres Attachment 286534

Attachment 286535

Also, the average temperature of the cpu is normally are 50-58, I rarely see it go to above 80%, I've been monitoring it with Temp Core. But I'll stick with Speccy since it's much better.

Also, WHQL 13.9? What's that? ( I'm new to this driver thingy, sorry )

EDIT: Forgot the PSU wattage, minimum psu is 489W, recomended PSU Wattage is 539W

What is the wattage of your own PSU? How much it is more than the recommended?

13.9 WHQL is the latest version of ATI display driver, released yesterday.

The GPU goes to 98 degrees within 5 minutes ..... it may be a critical information. How long did you run furmark? What happened when it was running? Did it cause any problem there? Did it stop itself or you stopped it manually?

Do you know how to dismantle a PC? Dont start dismantling it it is unfamiliar to you. Just let us know that you know it or not.

Attachment 286562 here is the PSU wattage

I was running Furmark for about a 1 minute till I heard a beeping ( from the program furmark, the fans were on at that moment) and then I manually stopped it. I do know how to dismantle a PC but I'm not familiar with what the motherboard, Graphic cards, and processor look like

We want to know the wattage of your own PSU. Of how many watts it is?

Suppose this one ... it is of 720 watts.
