Ken, he should have the newest drivers on the web site. This is a clean install about 2 weeks ago and I had told him to get the drivers from the web site at that time.

Ok, good. I've read through so many threads lately, I forget where I am sometimes.

The 'comment online' was just a remark made by someone in a forum or some such which I would have seen while trawling for answers to this problem. The PC is crashing and the "display driver has stopped and has recovered" (this is for the onboard graphics) afflicts the thing as well. Amount of effort being put in here is considerable and it strikes me that the machine is most ungrateful. Tempted to take it out the back and put it out of its (and my) misery but I haven't got a gun I have a motherboard in my parts box which I could swap in. The win 7 is oem but I think I should only have problems activating it at some later stage. I am conscious of the burden this stuff presents to you folks and I do not want to be a bigger PITA than is necessary.

Don't worry about that, it's what we do. We'll help any way we can. I was hoping it was te Haed Drive, but since it has passed all the tests it seems to me to be down to the PSU, Motherboard or CPU.

Hello Jim.

The issue ....
Quote:
display driver has stopped and has recovered

Is not a very good one. If the issue continues irrespective of driver version, it is the fault of the graphics chip. And you are right, you will face some trouble to activate it back if you swap the motherboard for an OEM license.

Getting a decent GPU will be an easier option, IMHO.

Reporting: display woes; plans

Hi Arc! The display driver problem was happening with the graphics adapter I had in the machine originally too, a Radeon 5670. It is obviously very unlikely that both the Radeon and the onboard adapter are defective. I infer that the problem originates with a flakey motherboard.

I am confident the PSU is ok as I've swapped out PSUs before and they were none of them defective. I have a (basic) psu tester which I can use if necessary.

Thank you all for your patient attention to this problem. I am gratified that I am not being too big a pain

I propose today (Sunday morning here) to swap in an old motherboard from the parts cupboard (warehouse) and see what happens. I can run windows unactivated perhaps for a time if I deselect online activation. I have a Linux Mint 16 disc here if necessary

I will report any new catastrophes in due course.

Jim

If you decide to change the motherboard, try Activate Windows 7 by Phone

Not a perfect plan as per the OEM licensing agreement, but the activation will work.

Thanks Arc, I have had to activate by phone a number of times and it gives me the heebie jeebies I gotta tell ya. I don't trust the kindness of Microsoft when it comes to win 7 oem licences. Anyway, have re-installed on the swapped-in board BA-Z68MA-D2H-B3. We shall see what we shall see
