Windows 7: BSOD when idle or gaming HD6670 .rar attached

BSOD when idle or gaming HD6670 .rar attached

Hi there, these last couple of days i've been experiencing BSOD intermittently. this happens whether gaming or just browsing in chrome.

I thought it might have been my GPU overheating so i ran MSi afterburner but the temp's when idling were 35-40, however, when the issue starts (really bad screen lag then complete lockup, all audio sticks then BSOD) the temps were fine but the GPU usage would spike too 100%.

Booting to safe mode i uninstalled all ATI drivers and ran regcure and driversweeper then performed a full scan with malwarebytes to check for virus etc, i then removed my GPU from the mobo and ran with integrated graphics and it worked fine.

I left the computer unplugged from the mains for a good half hour then put the card back in and installed the latest drivers all it worked fine and i was playing arkham asylum without any issues, i tabbed out to check facebook and when i tabbed in again my usb gamepad was not responding, so i pulled it out and replugged then... BSOD, although it was a different one this time but i couldn't catch what it said...

Several issues:

AVG is not the best security software. It also contributes in BSOD-s often.
Start Menu\Programs\AVG	Public:Start Menu\Programs\AVG	Public
Uninstall and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials.MSE is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software:-
1. Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
2. Malwarebytes - Free
3. Good and Free system security combination.
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Uninstall the following programs as well:
  1. Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Pro Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Pro Public

The issue with my card seems like it was just a driver conflict, since i reinstalled it hasn't happened. I updated windows and i removed the usb drivers and followed the instructions in both tutorials you posted and my gamepad has been fine.

I ran the file checker and disk check after the first BSOD and all was fine :)

I'm sure it was simply the display driver and the gamepad driver, thanks for all your help :)
