BSOD after GW2 installed

been crashing randomly since i installed gw2. i hadn't crashed the first two days and i've never directly crashed while playing gw2. I have crashed once i quit out. the other time i crashed was when i had after effects open as well as gw2 minimized.

I had no issues with BSOD once i updated my graphics card 3 months back. but it seems the plague is back. any insight would help!

  1. Download and run a DriverMax to verify that all of your drivers are up to date.

    http://www.drivermax.com/

    After updating all of the drivers upgrade your motherboard BIOS and possiby your graphics card BIOS.

    Let me know!

    (I love Guild Wars 2)
  2. Yep seems it was the graphics driver. bazaar how it does that. As for a BIOS update. Is there an easy non-dangerous way to do this? I've always read that BIOS updates are risky. Im running an ASUS p8p67 PRO Rev 3.1
