More about 6850
  1. Did you have nvidia driver before that, if so you have to uninstall them completely.
    Your PSU should be efficient enough
    Last but not the least you could have a faulty GPU
  2. i did remove all my nvidia drivers infact i followed it with a fresh windows installation.
    as for GPU i got it changed and the problem persists in the new one as well. i did some searching they say it might be that an update is required on the gpu bios. but however i dont want to ruin the card by updating the bios.
    i did however asked HIS on this problem and seems that plenty of people are having trouble with 6850 series with BSOD.
    any further advices will be very appreciated.
    thanks
  3. i tried to run 3D Mark and it gave the following error
