Windows 7: received the BSOD with a Asus EAH6850 DirectCU after installation

received the BSOD with a Asus EAH6850 DirectCU after installation

Hey Folks :)

just to clarify I'm still learning with computers

right here goes, basically i connected the graphics card stated above and from what i think it might not of been connected correctly. Not knowing this properly I went through with the driver installment and it installed then had to restart like always. But once it restarted and came to login the picture was fitting the size of the screen, so i thought maybe it might need the resolution chanced but no it was at 1080p. so i decided to turn down the resolution and then turn it back up and maybe things might be fixed.
Thats when there was a crash and the BSOD occurred and.

i when into the local computer shop saying i didn't have enough cable coming from my power supply so i bought a new one with the right cables, everything is all hooked together but no change i still have the same problem, though switch to my old graphics card there are no crashes at all. I hope this makes sense apologies for my lack of knowledge

Think maybe you trying to set the resolution wrong. 1080p is not what you want to be setting.

Right click the desktop then select screen resolution. (think that's what it is. I'm not in windows) Have a look in there.

Here we are. Check this out.

Doesn't explain the bsod though but it might help.
