Windows 7: BSOD and other crashes when rendering in Photoshop CS5

BSOD and other crashes when rendering in Photoshop CS5

Friend helped me build a computer a few weeks ago and I have been having on and off trouble with the drivers ever since.

Everytime I try and do anything graphically intense; ie rendering photos in photoshop or running any game above minimum settings the driver will crash after sometimes just a few seconds.

I have started getting error NVIDIA error code 3 and this morning it crashed to a blue screen that was mentioning something about graphics.

I have attached my .DMP file as I saw it help a user on another forum.

If you need any more information just ask, hope you can help!!

What you are having is usually very hard to nail down. It's Video TDR error. That is Time Delay and Response, meaning your drivers crashed and didn't recover in the time the OS allows for it to recover so the OS assumes a Graphics failure and crashes. It's quite common, but hard to nail down the cause.

First, please try a different graphics driver. But, this time install it like this

Also, is it safe to assume when you built the new machine, you did a clean install of the Operating system and downloaded the drivers from the motherboard's web site? If not, I would suggest you do that now. and run all Windows Updates except for the Graphics card, the on board graphics is not necessary if you have a dedicated card unless you are using something like VirtuMVP or something similar.

Try that and post with the results in the BSOD section.
