How to get rid of the blue screen of death?

I'm trying really hard to play World of Warcraft. Sometimes WoW will tell me my video card software is out of date. I have a radeon x800 gto with the latest driver software being 2009 and I used to have the blue screen a lot more until I finally decided to reinstall Windows 7. Does anyone know if there is an even newer software for this driver? If it's Windows Vista 64bit I'll try it out on Windows 7. Please help. Also, does anyone know if downgrading back to Vista would resolve this?

  1. well if it is indeed a BSOD caused by a video driver. you would have to keep finding revisions for the card, and install them correctly and try till it stops. When it comes to driver installation, most people who receives problems generally is due to a bad installation(note how often does a reviewer for example get drivers installed cleanly).

    Do you have any suggestions for finding a driver for this particular card? I've tried multiple already, and is hard because it isn't supported with Windows 7.
  3. You just have to check driver logs for supported cards. Each company drops off compatibility for future drivers at some point.

    Thanks, I'll keep trying and update if I find that works. (:
  5. I don't have an ac adapter problem. Did you send the wrong link?
  6. Your cards not officially supported under windows 7, do you know what cpu you are using you may be better off going with integrated graphics for a while.
