Sure, but we need to know make & model of your computer.
Normally you get drivers from your computer manufacturer and nowhere else. If you built your computer from components, you'd look to your motherboard's manufacturer, etc.
Here you go.
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM
An A10 7850k (integrated Gpu turned off)
GPU: R9 270x Sapphire
Ram: Kingston blue 1600mgz
MotherBoard: Msi A88xm E45
Case: Fractal core 1000
Cooler: deep cool 300
2 Hard drives
And what driver error (message)?
That's a tough message to solve.
It can be the game, app, hardware issue or drivers with troubles. It can even be the machine combination of parts.
Here's a message I got on Windows 7 that told me it was the driver.
What? Why would it have XP in the error message on 7? Seems Intel hadn't ported that driver correctly.
Sorry to write this but you need to not only check drivers from the makers but go over your PC for issues like big enough PSUs, the number of rails in the PSU but also the game you can get to crash.
Example. I have this buddy that could crash GTA on demand. Since it was easy to replicate it didn't take long to find reports on that when his video card was in some specific AA mode. Changed that setting and it stopped crashing. This is an example of one of some thousand finds on that error.
PS. Must add this famous issue.
When Adobe switched on hardware acceleration in Flash, you saw a lot of those messages. Google "Disable hardware acceleration in Flash" for info.
This meant you saw that message by using a browser.
To further solve my issue I only crash on thesis games as you said it could be a bunch of issues but this might help (This list is below) also i think it's something to do with Direct X Because not using it makes the problem disappear some times but 80% of the time. I think it's a PSU issue How do i disable my gpu or my Apu's Gpu?? That might fix the problem.
Realm of the Mad God
Emulators of any kind
Blender (3d animation thing)
Sonic Riders Pc
Adobe Stuff like Flash and After effects
Can't find the PSU in the mix.
PS. Disable GPU in APU
Ooo sorry, I can't remember
Try it without the GPU next.
The PSU is a fairly nice one (single rail, almost all the Watts I noted) but nothing is pointing to anything specific.
Move back to the APU only and is it still crashing?
Sorry for being AFK for nearly 2 weeks but i'm back
Anyways i tried it sadly didn't work Still crashing
OK, now it's something in the PC.
Try a factory restore. If it still crashes it's hardware.
How do i do that?
I see you mentioned Adobe Flash. I had same...
...error message when I was using Adobe Flash with my browser. So I switched to Chrome (which has its own flash) and uninstalled Adobe Flash, and haven't seen the problem since. Funny thing is that this didn't happen on my other PCs, 2 of which are running Windows 10, but as soon as I got rid of Adobe Flash, my problems were solved. Adobe Flash (as well as Acrobat reader) is known to be buggy so avoid it when you can.
I've since learned that IE now has its own flash player, so that works for me as well as Chrome. I haven't tried Edge because I really don't like it.
Many have problems with these MSI motherboards and those seem to increase when using AMD APU and FX processors and an MSI video card tops it off.
It seems some problems are related to power surges when using certain AMD processors, and that's a power control problem built into the motherboard.
These problems are happening on Linux operating systems for the same MSI motherboards and AMD processors and that points back at the motherboards themselves as the problem.
I'd not wait for MSI to admit this till they are finally forced to.
Wish the news was better, but knowing what I've seen over and again, I'd not buy an MSI motherboard at this time.
Thanks for the information!
But i'm getting a large sum of money this month so would you help me pick a new motherboard and Cpu and case and cpu cooler and PSU and ram. if the new PSU is needed i will get that to. my graphics card is is not from MSI ^_^ So that's a plus.
My Budget is about £800 (\^O^/).
underclock the CPU and see if the problem stops. That can help control the amount of power to the CPU a bit more.
I will do that.

Before i do that up there i will test that and see if it works 1st
Then go to MSI for most if not all your drivers.
I already do that.
The very 1st time i got my PC i got everything from MSI and my graphics drivers from AMD.
