Hello axe0, thanks for the input. What would you do in my place. This only came about because I updated the drivers on the graphics card, shall I try a new graphics card as I'm loathe to move on from Windows 7. Hopefully, I wont have to replace the pc even though it is old?
Thanks for all your help.

Old hardware may fail suddenly, you need to keep an eye on the health and status of your hardware where you can if you're not planning on replacing.

Hello axe0, I really appreciate you taking the time to check out the problems I'm having.

Sorry to be thick, but I want to get my head round what you are saying before I close this thread down.

From what you have seen it is the installation of W7 on the motherboard/bios combination in my pc that is causing the BSOD (I thought W7 did compatibility checks before installation?) and nothing to do with the updating of the graphics adapter driver that I carried out?
There is nothing I can do ie upgrading the bios (if possible), changing the graphics adapter, or upgrading the os that will correct the situation, the only thing to do is to replace the pc?
Many thanks.

Your motherboard is incompatible with Windows 7, your BIOS cannot be updated to a version compatible for Windows 7.
There is no certainty that incompatibility has anything to do with the cause or being the cause, but it can and in most cases will complicate things and could make it impossible to fix the problems you're experiencing.

Difference between an I3 7200 RPM and I5 5400 RPM
