Display Driver crashes. Unknown error.

    I'm currently re-installing windows, trying to download an elder driver for the GPU, seeing if that'll prevent it from crashing.

    I strongly suspect your GPU might be faulty. Do you have a spare card to test with? Did the crashes occur before you installed the drivers on the fresh installation? What's your PSU model, age and wattage? After answering this, perform the test below, and follow my instructions precisely as this can damage your GPU if not done right!
    Code:
    Perform the FurMark Video test.
     	 		 			 			 				FurMark download site:  FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net 
    FurMark Setup:
     - If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
     - In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
     Click "Go" to start the test  (Looks like it's "BURN-IN test" now)
     - Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
     NOTE:  Set the alarm to go off at 90șC.  Then watch the system  from that point on.  If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch  it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems.  DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!  
     If the temperature gets above 100șC, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
     - Click "Quit" to exit
    
    What you are looking for:  
    - excessive heat from the GPU (report back with anything over 90șC)
    - problems with the video display (picture is distorted or jumbled, picture turns black, etc)
    - problems reported by the program (I haven't seen this, but "just in case")

    The crashes did not occour before the installing of drivers, my PSU is a Corsair CX600 600w, and is about 2-3 months old

    Then do a system restore to a point before installing them and use ones that came with windows, and let Windows Update install them, if they offer it. If you then receive the BSOD run the test.

    Well. if my GPU is faulty, I'll contact the place where I bought it, and I'll get a new one or my money back hopefully. Thanks a lot for the help man, I really do appreciate your time! Wish I had the knowledge that you do!

    Not a problem, try a system restore before RMAing the card.
