Windows 7: BSOD

After 10 hours or so I've experienced no BSODs. So this could indicate thats is most a problem with drivers ?

Definite maybe.

The hardware is still the same, obviously, so that's not it. If you boot the machine in "basevideo" mode, what's different is:

a) the driver
b) the amount of video hardware functionality "********d" by the driver.

Since the in-built VGA driver emphasises safety and reliability over performance (it's commonly used on servers), it's not going to be invoking some of the more exotic hardware functionality. Hence, it may not expose an underlying hardware defect which could manifest itself under a hardware-specific high-performance driver. Lending your grandma's car to Michael Schumacher may expose "hardware" issues which she didn't know about

Still, chances are it's the (hardware-specific) driver. If in doubt, blame the software.

EDIT: apparently that word which describes physical exertion for sporting and health purposes is indeed dirty. Go figure.

My mistake, I thought that there were additional BSOD's since you last uploaded what you had.

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.
so would it be fair to conclude a better written driver might solve this issue on this hardware ?

As I interpret the information from H2SO4 - it's more likely that the driver won't fix anything (because it's supposedly done it's job when the video card called to it). But, there is the possibility that a small glitch in the driver could cause this sort of issue - so it's worth checking this first (and it's a lot less expensive than replacing the card).

Then, if the video card isn't overheating, and the card is properly seated and powered - then it's likely that the video card is "borked" and a new one is needed. FWIW - I got a STOP 0x124 on a huge PCIe video card in a Dell computer not long ago. Wiggling the card around in the slot fixed the error for me.
