Well ive been here quite a few times in the past months :tazz:.

Im having problems loading my ATI video drivers. I start up it boots fine then it begins to load windows and bam the blue screen of death. Im pretty sure it has somthing to do with the drivers because ive seen the error before and it said Video Card Driver Failure and it reboots. any suggestions?

Other than making sure the card has enough memory alotted to it, if it needs memory, and trying to reinstall the drivers from the ATI website, which provides excellent support with no strings attached. What kind of card and computer do you have? The problem may be peculiar to a particular card or machine.

I got back yesterday and im getting blue screen of death quite often when I try and start it up. Usually it says MachineCheckExpection and or Dumping physical memory to disk. Ill get the error code in a sec.

Oh and this is a bit off topic but what are some good cpu stress tests so I can make sure my sys is stable after Overclocking? http://www.benchmark...ml?/be_cpu.html -- any of those good?

You overclocked a 3800+ you arent going to get much more out of the cpu unless you have some super cool cooling. If it is overclocked reset it windows becomes hairy if you push your pc to far.
