Ok guys

Heres what I have so far. I took out the radeon card and went back to the integrated graphics on the mobo, and could not get the computer to bluescreen. As soon as I put it back in again, and ran Call of duty, it froze the computer (Pending BSOD.) It still has intermittent times when it won't boot though. It lights up, but no bios.

I have another computer that I am having no issues with at all, and I purchased a Radeon HD 5670 for it. I installed a new 500W PSU, and the computer ran fine on the integrated graphics card, but as soon as I installed the radeon card, the following happened. Call of duty runs like a charm and no blue screen. As soon as I run World of Warcraft it blue-screened several times before settling in. It's been running for 24 hours now without a glitch, and I am in and out of WOW, and so far all is good. I haven't been raiding yet though.

It's a freakin' mystery unless Radeons have an issue with windows 7

Blessings

I'm running a ATI Radeon HD 5600 Series with no problems in XP Pro 64 bit, Win 7 64 bit and Linux Pro 64 bit.
I think your problem is the card itself.

Highly doubtful it's both cards. I would say then the drivers are not being fully uninstalled and\or the PSU may not be powering the card correctly.

Well at least it appears to have completely discounted the motherboard. I cannot see a board fault that will run OK with the Integrated graphics and fail on the card., as if that fault did exist I reckon it would fail without gaming.
My money would be on the Game both WOW and Call of Duty in relation to the particular ram, CPU etc.
I do not Game, and I am not a fan of tweaking but I just have a feeling your answer may lie with the wealth of information on those cards in the gaming community forums. I noticed when I first contributed to the thread and then suggested the integrated graphics that many people have tweaked and solved the problem.

Good luck with it.

Like I said it sounds more like a under powered video card.


Motherboard Info:

Download SIW from HERE and get the Standalone English version
It will install itself and when finished

Then Click on SIW Icon to run program
On the left side click on the Motherboard directory and then on the right, copy and paste the information in your next reply
On the left side click on the Sensors directory and then on the right, copy and paste the information in your next reply

Just to clarify, I meant actual motherboard board fault, as against what rshaffer61 suggested of underpowered graphics card.
He is, compared with me the expert on these matters and you.should follow his advice.
