Windows 7: Muliple BSOD's, Stalls, failure to boot etc etc and I am now desperate

16 Feb 2012   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Well, 6 days ago I took out the GTX 460 card and installed a PowerColor HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 graphics card. I used it for a couple of days without any problems, so decided to re-install the SSD (for the OS and other programmes) wipe the HDD and relocate the User profiles to that drive and go through all of the updates (again!!)

Since then, it has all worked seamlessly, no crashes, no stalls and back to the sort of speed I used to enjoy. So, it does seem that the GPU was causing the problem, just like indicated on the Nvidia forum.

Pretty happy right now. :)

Thanks for all the help. Couldn't have done it woithout you guys.
