I previously started a thread a while ago where i was suggested to update my graphics drivers however this did not help.
So here it goes:
In December i built a computer with the following specs:
OS: Windows 7
Sapphire HD 4670 Ultimate Edition 512MB GDDR3 HDMI DVI VGA PCI-E Graphics
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8GHz Socket 775 1066MHz FSB 3MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
Sony AD-7240S 24x DVD±RW DL & RAM Internal SATA Black Bare Drive – OEM
Gigabyte GA-EG41MF-US2H G41 HDMI DVI VGA High Def Audio Out MATX Motherboard
Crucial 4GB (2X2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Ballistix Memory CL4 2.0V
OCZ Stealth Xtream 500W PSU - 1x PCI-E 6/8pin, 2x SATA 12cm FanScythe Ninja II Rev. B
CPU Cooler (Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+/AM3/775/1156/1366)
Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM (HD103SJ)
About a month ago, my computer started to blue screen constantly so i spoke to a friend who advised me it sounded like a graphics card problem. He advised me to run a memtest anyhow just to check. I ran the memtest and the ram passed fine.
The problem kept occurring so he informed me to use the Mobo’s build in graphics card. I took the PCI card out, and the computer ran fine for a few days until the problem started again.
The problem then started to develop from the bluescreens to locking up/restarting problems programs like firefox and MSN messenger. This week, my computers explorer.exe keeps locking up and the only option is to restart the computer.
I updated the graphics card but this did not help, I then removed the graphics card drivers (using DH remover I think its called) and let windows automatically detect its own ones however this did not solve the problem.
I ran BurnInTest which said that the problem is a 2d graphs problem.
I’ve tried a few things but am pretty stuck now and its really annoying me so any help would be grateful please!
I’ve attached a few minidump files if you could have a look at them please?
Thank you, your help is very much appreciated!
