OKay its possible the BIOS update solved the problem.

In regards to your GFX Driver.

Run Driver Verified, and it should result in a BSOD of which i will be able to tell you about your graphics driver.

information   Information
Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.
