Windows 7: BSOD (playing Runescape) and Win 10 problems

In the store I could test another card and it worked with its drivers installed, and he also suspected the GPU after that, but now my computer froze again randomly after an hour of use (with the iGPU).

Edit: I'm thinking of doing a clean Win7 install and then maybe a clean Win 10 install.
Edit2: Screen froze once after an hour of use, now after 3 hours of use, nothing like has happened before with my dGPU

The card with its respectable drivers gives the same problems on a clean install of Windows 10 install aswell. Will test if the iGPU problems still exist too.

Edit: Computer still freezes, I'm out of ideas really.

Could you test the CPU in the store?

Do you think these are separate problems, my GPU being pretty much broken and my CPU also causing problems?

Thats what I'm trying to find out with you, but I can't know for certain until it is tested

It could be that what I said earlier, the motherboard may be the cause, may well be the opposite. It could be that your CPU & GPU are causing the problems.

I read somewhere, that Speccy might cause the freezing, I'll try again by not using the dGPU, but I'm fairly sure the GPU is atleast at fault, and something else might be aswell.

Edit: The problems exist after uninstalling Speccy, just an fyi I fully cleaned my dGPU previously and those problems still existed.

Speccy sometimes causes freezes because of a certain temporary driver that sometimes causes problems, the same goes for a few similar programs that also use this driver.

Do the problems then exist after uninstalling Speccy, so I should do a clean reinstall and not install Speccy that time?

A better way, to keep your stuff, after uninstalling Speccy is by cleaning the temp folders.
There are 2 temp folder, 1 for the user & 1 for the system.
What you could do is a few things to accomplish it,
- You could run Ccleaner to cleanup the temp folders,
- You could run disk cleanup to cleanup the temp folders,
- You could go to the folders manually and delete as many files as possible by yourself.
