  1. I know that my BSOD is my video card acting up. I tried doing some research on it. The only thing that came up was proof that the drivers for the Geforce 7950 GX2 are the problem. I would like your help tho. Take a look and tell me what you find. Thx in advance.

    So have you tried updating the 7950 GX2 drivers from the Nvidia support website?

    yes i completely removed the drivers and installed the latest ones from the website. i did it twice once in safe mode and the other in regular mode. it was still a no go.

    This just started happening recently.

    Try resetting the bios to their default settings. If still no-go, the video card may be dying...
