Hi guys, previously had a GTX 275 installed in my rig but downgraded today to a HD 4850 for various reasons. Thought I would try my luck with the already installed windows, ran driver sweeper and cleared all of the old Nvidia stuff of there, rebooted, installed cat 10.2, restarted and everything seemed fine. Ran WOW for my girlfriend and within 1-2 mins it crashed to desktop and then I got a BSOD. Checked temps out and they are excellent as this particular card has an accelero fitted.

Decided, what the hell I'll do a fresh install to make sure there are no driver conflicts, reinstalled, installed drivers and seemed fine. Went on internet and BANG another BSOD within a minute. Currently running in safe mode typing all this which is absolutely fine and no issue - any ideas on possible problems and how I can rectify this please?

Did you check GPU temps and VRM temps or just GPU?

Make sure DirectX is updated. Since WoW is an older game and I've heard of others having problems with newer cards, and since it's working fine in safe mode try not installing CCC. Just go with the standalone driver.

theres usually some sort of error code or at least a minor discription of what caused the BSOD near the bottom of it - google that part of it or upload the pic

seems to be an issue with Nvidia drivers.
I don't have any installed now, I did a fresh install. It looks like a driver issue for sure and I'm wondering on the compatability of the drivers with my build of windows 7 64bit which is 7600, it says on ATI site they are not compatible. I'm going to try erockers suggestion and then an early set of the 9xxx series drivers.

7600 is supposedly the RTM/Final build. but Ive ran a pretty 'early' 7600 build where it 'locked' some features out so in a sense its not quite RTM.....

----

Try getting a more uptodate installation CD. & see if it makes any difference. It might - it might not. but I think theres very little difference between 7600 RC & RTM.

Im not sure the 32bit drivers will work on a x64 system but good luck
