Hey Michael Collins, Welcome to SF.

First of all, remove all the drivers of your graphic card (GPU). After removing all the drivers run this small software, Guru3D - Driver Sweeper. This small app will remove the bits of drivers installed in your hard drive. Go to AMD site and download the latest drivers from their (or you can download from Sevenforums as well). Install the latest drivers. As per my suggestion do not let Windows install update for your GPU. As, this can cause clashes between drivers from ATI and Windows and may cause crashes and BSODs.

If this resolved your issue, well and good. If not, check for dust on your GPU and processor.

P.S Do all the above steps without your SSD. After all is done, then install it.

Keep us posted.

- can you give some info regarding the steps you took when installing the SSD..
- what is the storage capacity of the drive, and did you set it up as the primary C: drive?
- do you have the Microsoft OS Installation disks?
