Hi guys, so last week I built a new pc with these following components

Intel Core i5 3570K LGA1155 CPU 3.4Ghz 6Mb Cache Ivy Bridge

Asrock Z77-EXTREME4 Z77/4 x DDR3/2 x PCI-E3.0/4 x SATA3/6 x USB3.0/HDMI/D

Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3 low profile

Sapphire HD7850 OC 2G 256Bit GDDR5 PCIE3.0 DVI HDMI DSP

Samsung S24B350H 24inch LED HDMI VGA 2ms -

SeaSonic M12II 620W 80+ PSU

Ever since building it, it's been running fine with all the games I play. Decided that updating all the drivers would be good for my new components. So I started downloading drivers for my GPU from their site. Now I'm experiencing BSOD. That's all I remember in terms of what I have done to my system so far. Could anyone please help me with how to fix this problem? Many thanks

Also, I get the BSOD at random times. Once was just simply starting up steam, other times during game. I don't believe I'm putting my system under load or anything like that to make it have to shut down

What is the operating system your running and is it x86 or x64bit? Try repairing using your Windows Disc, Cause similar incident happened to me when I tried to update my drivers when I repaired i came to know that SMBus was incompatible with the version of windows I was running.

Hope that helps. Do let me know if it works.
