    right got my new graphics card geforce 7800gt but everytime i install the drivers for it either from the site or the version that came with it my pc will show the blue screen error message after a few seconds of windows being booted. any ideas what to do?

    first off its not bad ram, processor etc... which is what every article i read last time i got this with my old sound card suggested first. Its these drivers as my pc runs fins for hours without them installed!

    Have you uninstaled older drivers and used a program like "driver cleaner"?

    Sometimes older drivers can leave a residual which messes with the newer drivers.

    Did u use an ATi card before you got the 7800?
    If so you may still have ATi driver files lurking arround.
    You need to get rid of any resilduals before installing a new card. Sometimes you need to reinstal windows.
    Its always good to do a fresh install.

    This is a standard error indicating that incompatible drivers have been installed. :lesson:
