Download 3dMark and run the benchmark tests.

Does it crash when running them?

What should I run? I don't see benchmark tests. I see on the bottom Run 3DMark, Image Quality, Filtering & AA, Graphs, Demo, and Game.

Did you try any of the steps in the Steampowered article I linked to?
Have you tried a BIOS update?

The BIOS update can be found on this page under FlashBIOS updates.

After having massive problems with the latest drivers, i've now come to the conclusion that the series 9 drivers are crap. I was getting blue screens and a lot of my games were freezing. Try rolling back your drivers to 84.21 which is what i've done and so far i've had no more problems.

The steampowered article has details on forcing a DirectX mode I was going to ask you to force a different mode to see if it crashed.

Well, it says my driver version is like 6 or something... how would I roll it back to 84.21.
Also, someone said not to do the BIOS update because 1 thing is messed up in there your whole computer goes.

Rolling back would mean uninstall your existing drivers and install the 84.21 drivers.

If you were using Direct Diagnostics to view your driver version then the last four numbers are the version. For example 6.14.0010.8421 would be 84.21.

The reason I posted about the BIOS update is because certain people have had freezes and crashes when using ASUS motherboards. Updating the BIOS cured the problem for them. The Dell motherboard you have could be a re-badged ASUS.

You don't have the others installed so roll back isn't going to work. The only option is to uninstall and reinstall.
