That is, not once has my fix been the same two times in a row. Once in a while it's the PSU, the next it's drivers and then I run into BIOS, motherboards and cards.
That's the challenge. What is it this time?
What is your parts list?
Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
When using the PC even with simple tasks like watching a YouTube Video, I get a short black screen followed by the error message “graphics driver stopped responding and has recovered” and sometimes the browser is not responding. When this happens while playing a game (even not graphic intensive games) the game is not responding 100% of the times. Sometimes the error message does not even appear.
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
Reinstall and update graphics card driver (over installation CD and online downloads)
Clean install and update windows 10
Clean install and update windows 7
Look for motherboard BIOS updates (non found)
Observed CPU and GPU temperatures (normal)
Returned graphics card to supplier to have it checked (works perfectly)
Installed graphics card in a completely different system (no issues at all)
Followed this display driver fix: http://www.epinionated.net/fix-display-driver-stopped-responding-windows-10/
Followed this fix by uninstalling Chrome http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/58860-63-solved-display-driver-stopped-responding-recovered
Followed this processing times fix for 64bit systems http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/58860-63-solved-display-driver-stopped-responding-recovered
Tested my RAM with the built in RAM tester from windows (no memory errors detected)
Ran Memtest86+ without any errors
Provide any additional details you wish below.
Unfortunately I do not have a second graphics card to test if the problem is still present with a completely different GPU. I am quite certain that there is some kind of driver or compatibility issue, rather than a hardware problem, but at this point I don’t know what else to do. Which is why I am tempted to buy the i3 7100 with some new motherboard, even though I wouldn’t get much of a performance increase (if any). So please do let me know if you have any other ideas on what I could try to fix this.
Note: This has already been posted on reddit by me, but since it has not yet been resolved I am trying to reach more people.
