I have a Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Computer is only 1 year old. I have 4gb of DDR3 RAM and a Radeon HD 5770 GPU
Just updated my video card drivers.

Whenever I am doing something graphically intense I get a Blue Screen telling me physical memory dump. Unfortunately it only stays there for 3 seconds before restarting, so I can't really obtain too much info.

I have scanned for viruses and done various test on my hardware and all comes out to be clean or in working order.

If anyone has any ideas on how to fix the problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi 1994techguy,
How are you updating the drivers? Through steam, ATI/AMD directly, through windows, PC gamer CD?
Try through steam (if you have it) but first uninstall the driver then reinstall, worked with me when my driver wasn't fully installed (or corrupted not sure which it was)

Before you do anything, you need to do this:

1) update the BIOS for your motherboard if required

2) download and run MEMTEST or reboot using the included Memory Test.

*BIOS updates often include details for RAM timings. If your RAM is not recognized then the motherboard assigns default timings which sometimes are not completely stable.

I agree:
1. Drivers - uninstall & re-install ->
2. Memtest 4 passes or at least 1 hour
3. PSU - if you have a failing/bad PSU then under increased load a BSOD can result. IMO test the CPU with Prime95, if you get a BSOD under load then chances are a 'power' problem is the likely cause.
