I think most people do graphics drivers different ways. and usually it doesn't make a difference as long as you uninstall the older drivers first. I never install graphics drivers from Windows update and usually run the latest drivers from Nvidia. I always install mine this way NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems and only install PhysX and the Display Driver. That does not make anyone else's way wrong, just the way I do it.

Please understand I'm not recommending a way to install driver. Just wanted to mention that one can slip in with Windows Updates and a need to watch so one doesn't slip in.

I usually do update a different way by not deleting old drivers, just installing and performing clean install, ive never had an issue until now, like you say there doesn't seem to be a wrong or right way.
I install driver and PhysX only never bother with GeForce experience or the 3d/hd options,
I have an older driver installed as a test, I will try your guide when I try a new driver to see if that helps.

Sounds fine. It's just a matter of whatever works for you and your card.

Hello again essenbe, ive tried the original gpu driver I used since getting my card knowing it was stable and no crashes, but im still getting the BSOD. Just a quick question as another issue is starting to happen, im in the process of looking into this, its an error message ive had about Microsoft .NET Framework. Im just wondering is the BSOD being caused by a hardware issue i.e graphics card or is it possible I have installed windows incorrectly on my ssd.
You've been a great help with this, and if your sure it will be a faulty component, my next step is to try new parts in the pc ( borrowed from my sons pc ) if this doesn't fix the fault then I may just start a fresh and try windows 10 xD
Or if there is no way to say for certain if hardware or software I might just do a clean install first as less risk of damaging something.

Have you run all windows updates? If you are missing a net framework it will come through windows updates. You can go to Control panel - uninstall a program and look through there and it will show the net framework items you have installed. You probably need Microsoft net framework 4.5.1. If you don't have it, you can download it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=40773. I wouldn't try Windows 10 just yet.

Strange, I thought it was too and remember installing it, but don't see it listed in my computer. Just wonder why. Maybe WTP ate it.
