Did you restore your (hopefully) backed up drivers after re-install?.
FUZZY?!? Was there a slight distortion of the pixels?

Hey Maverick,

Before I ask for any help, can you try this (after re-installing your drivers):
Boot the computer into safe mode (rapid press of F8 key at splash screen on boot) and see if your BSOD stops:

If you still get BSOD in safe mode then it most probable its hardware related. (leave in safe mode till BSOD occurs)
If it stops its more likely software/driver issues.

Cheers

May have been the driver updates that have reduced the crashes. However now getting a message at boot about Catalyst Control Centre and drivers.
