BSoD while playing games

I have an nvidia 8800 gts, windows 7 64 bit, intel core 2 quad q6600; I just updated the display drivers and now I get BSoD in the middle of a pc game, weird static textures across screen while playing a pc game and then a black screen or a crash, youtube and other streaming videos have scratchy sound when in fullscreen, and I will get a pc crash where the monitor no longer gets a signal. I have tried rolling back the driver to the previous one and the problem persists. I have tried 4 other driver versions and the problem is the same throughout. I don't think it is the drivers but rather the GPU itself? What could this be?

Also how do I start in safe mode with a usb keyboard? Seems like dos doesn't recognize my keyboard at the safe mode selection screen.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

  1. Try reinstalling the old drivers since BSOD didn't happen until after you updated your drivers.
