Windows 7: Modern Warfare 2 crashes even on optimal settings

No, I simply switched the motherboards: I replaced the ECS mobo with an ASUS. When I used the ECS, device manager used to display two display drivers. But now that I am using the ASUS mobo, it only displays the GTX260.

The setting in the BIOS is configuered: PCI-E - PCI - Onboard
I am not entirely sure that you can disable the onboard gfx completely.

WOW, amazing that the HDD still works fine after switching mobos but I would do as others have suggested.

(**) Go to your Bios and check around for the Onboard Video option (can't remember where it is) and make sure you Disable it

1.- Repair install with your Windows 7 CD, just to make sure that windows 7 works perfect with your new mobo... I would do a Complete and Clean Install myself but that's just me

2.- make sure you go to Nvidia and download a fresh copy of your GTX260 driver (Awesome card btw ) and save it on a temp folder.

3.- Uninstall the one you have now, also uninstall the PhysX drivers (very important) run the sweeper and restart... I like to do this in Safe mode to get rid of everything.

4.- Once back at the desktop, install the new drivers (right click and Run as Admin) and restart when asked... you should be fine after that.

"amazing that the HDD still works fine after switching mobos" Why does everybody keep saying that? LOL
No, really, when I switched mobo, the PC ran just fine. Although, I was itchy to do a clean install of Windows 7, after installing the Asus mobo. So I did.
I still got the error message.
Just to be certain, I'll set the BIOS display settings to PCI-E, do a driver sweep in safe mode, do a clean install of Windows 7 and reinstall the GTX260 driver.

I did get the NVIDIA drivers from Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies I always look for drivers on manufacturer's website.

This means I'll have to play the MW2 all over again, which means I'll be back on this topic after 3 days

I'll keep you guys posted.

You got all the drivers install for the old board and they are already on the registry tight with the hdd, now you come in, switch boards and install drivers for that board, that has to create problems for the registry, incompatibility and other not so good things...

I am sure others more knowledgeable will chime in with a better explanation but I hope you get the gist of it.

It seems that I get the BSOD the most when I am trying to run a game through the Steam application. Also when I try and use video recording software while playing this game. My drivers are up to date, and I have attached a DxDiag for anyone to view if it helps. Once in a while I will get it...
