Hello, this is my first time here :) . I am not very tech savvy, so I need a little help on how to fix this problem.

It started after my GeForce 6800 graphics card screwed up and i had to switch to an ATI Radeon 9800 PRO. The ATI worked for my brother in his computer when he played CS:S, so I don't know why it would cause trouble in mine. But after starting up CS:S and joining a populated server (16-32 players), everything is ok for around 5-20 minutes, then out of nowhere my computer restarts and I get the "your computer has recovered from a serious error" message. I have researched for people who've had the same problem and how they solved it, but nothing seemed to be working for me. In "Startup and Recovery" I unchecked the box that says "automatically restart" so that I could see what the error was when it happened, but all it did was go to a blank blue screen. I also read about how you should uninstall the drivers for your old graphics card before installing the drivers for your new one, which I didn't do. After reading it though, I uninstalled the NVIDIA Drivers and reinstalled the ATI video drivers, but to no avail.

Here's what the Error Sign says:
BCCode : 1000007f BCP1 : 0000000D BCP2 : 00000000 BCP3 : 00000000

have you looked at what event viewer is reporting for errors at the time the pc reboots? It could help you identify a app/process/part or file thats involved.

Well I took a look and one of them says this:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x0000000d, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini082108-01.dmp.

Solved it! Guess I had to uninstall my current drivers and download the "Omega Drivers" from OmegaDrivers.net
