Hello helpful people of TechSpot, I'm creating this thread because my graphics card is reoccurring problem. This problem occurs on multiple occasions. I am sure loading a game (Civilization V, Starcraft 2) is causing this to occur but in the past I think running multiple applications (web browser, music application, games) has also had the same effect. This error isn't constant, I have had multiple occasions where I can load multiple apps. or a game as mentioned and have no video hardware error at all. The only other thing I can report is before I installed my new graphics cards, (see specs below) I had another card that I swapped out. The software is still installed but I figure that doesn't effect my current graphics card. I have installed the software for my new graphics card using the CD software but I fear something may have gone awry. My specs are: Graphics Card: ASUS HD7870-DC2TG-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz Here is a log of my most recent hardware error: Source Windows Summary Video hardware error Date 7/8/2012 9:29 PM Description A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly. Problem signature Problem Event Name:LiveKernelEvent OS Version:6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID:1033 Files that help describe the problem WD-20120708-2128.dmp sysdata.xml WERInternalMetadata.xml Extra information about the problem BCCode:117 BCP1:FFFFFA800BDF04E0 BCP2:FFFFF8800431367C BCP3:0000000000000000 BCP4:0000000000000000 OS Version:6_1_7601 Service Pack:1_0 Product:768_1 I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what I should do to fix this reoccurring problem. In addition, a less significant question: Am I able to uninstall past video card software? I am wondering this because I have gotten rid of my older graphics card as mentioned above and I would like to uninstall the software because I no longer need it. Thanks a ton!
