    Blue Screen


    I'm getting the blue screen, attached is the details of PC. A bit of history about what has happened lately, I got these blue screens about a month ago and I discovered it was a faulty graphics card, so I replaced the graphics card with a different and slightly better one and then on Thursday last I installed Windows 8.1 Pro as I had Windows 7 Home, and all was going well until this morning while playing the game Spore, a blue screen appeared, then again tonight the PC froze and I had to do a force shut-down. So any ideas. Thanks in advance.

    BSOD was caused by atikmdag.sys which is your Video driver. Please update the driver

I get Blue Screen very often in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
When I watch Youtube, I get Blue screen randomly. Also, I found that choosing sound quality 24 bit, 24000 HZ, instead of 24 bit, 192000 HZ seems to alleviate the problem. But, as an audiophile, I would like to still set it to 192000 HZ. Any idea?
