Windows 7: BSOD after installing Graphics Drivers

02 May 2014   #11


That seems fine to me.
I can't see hardware being a problem.
Can you just use your PC normally and see if it crashes.

Yes, I can use my PC normally to see if it crashes. I'll play a few games, watch a few series, browse the web etc.

I'm curious though, why can't you see it being a hardware problem? I'm just trying to understand if you might be seeing something I'm not. As normally right about now I'd jump up and think something along the lines of "ok, it works perfectly with a different graphics card, mine must be up for replacing".

Part of the reason is the title of the thread.
Secondly you've stress tested your GPU and it's running fine.

Just let us know the results.

Well yeah, but these problems came up with the GTX 480 card (pretty much out of the blue I might add), not the 8800 GTS that I swapped it with earlier today. I never actually managed to stress test my GTX 480 as my PC would not boot up (except in safe mode) with the drivers installed. The only way it wants to boot up is if it's using the standard Windows drivers which won't allow me to stress test due to the missing OpenGL 2.0.

Anyway I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all the help you've provided over the past few days and I'll let you know if anything changes!
