    Roll your system back to the previous drivers. The rule on drivers is if they aren't broke don't fix it. In othyer words, if drivers are stable and working fine then leave them be.

    i can run games/ but i get random crashes

    I've fixed my gaming problem, but now i get random crashes. I think it might be caused from my graphics card. Is there an easy way to fix this?

    When your system crashes do you get the Blue Screen of Death?
