Bluescreen Shutdown

Hi All,

I recently built a computer (specs below) and have had few problems until recently. About once a day, the system will go to the Bluescreen and restart. I'm scared that I don't have a correct driver and am doing serious harm so I'm hoping you can help out.

Upon restart, it says that the Videocard stopped working properly. Obviously I'd think it's that but don't know where to start.


Here are the problem details:

  1. i'd make sure you have enough power running to your system

    and obviously make sure you have the latest drivers. both AMD and Nvidia now have auto updates for their drivers
  2. Make sure your video card is fully seated in the PCI-EX socket. I had an issue like that once and it turned out that the case alignment was not very good and when screwing the Vid Card to the case it was pulling it slightly out of the PCI-EX socket.
  3. Windows update it up, the new framework updates have solved allot of issues so far,
