Windows 7: BSOD after processor upgrade? (Phenom II X2 555 - Phenom II X6 1055)

BSOD after processor upgrade? (Phenom II X2 555 - Phenom II X6 1055)

I have an assembled computer that I have used since a few years ago without problems.

a few weeks ago, just because of curiosity, I replaced my Phenom II X2 555 with Phenom II X6 1055 (used).

Shortly after that I started experiencing BSOD. That happens especially when I play games, even games that I can play before without problems when I still use Phenom II X2 555.

I have taken several actions to correct this problem. I have upgraded my drivers. I tried Windows Resource Protection, but according to WRP there was no problem there. I am currently preparing to do clean install windows, but I myself am not sure whether this will solve the problem. I myself am not an expert in handling computers.

So, what should I do? Is this a problem with my AMD Phenom II X6 1055? or other? This is the specification of my current computer:
- AMD Phenom II X6 1055
- Gigabyte 880gm ud2h (rev 1.4) motherboard
- 8 GB RAM, Corsair (2x4)
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
- PSU Corsair TX 650
- ASUS EAH 5750 Formula

Please help, and thank you :)

I'm not an expert either but looking at the logs, I would first check to see if you have the latest driver from ASUS for your graphics card. I know it sounds strange since you changed CPUs but, the cause of the exception (dxgmmm1.sys) is normally associated with the graphics. I know you said you upgraded drivers but I didn't know if you upgraded the Windows drivers or the driver for your graphics card. You might also run this-

Finding Up-To-Date Software and Device Drivers!

to see what it comes up with. To actually replace drivers, it's probably for pay but I wouldn't pay.
