Windows 7: BSOD: Video driver crash.

04 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD: Video driver crash.


I was playing a game in google chrome and also had a youtube video open in another tab. Suddenly my screen went black, Windows Aero effects were off for a few seconds, then they went back up. White bars started to appear randomly on the screen, an error popped up that the Video Driver had crashed. After a couple of seconds it looked like it was getting back but then the screen went black again and the BSOD appeared.
It is the first time this has happened. I hope you people might be able to find the exact cause and offer a solution.

Thank you in advance,
