    Bought a new Pc today amd fx-4100 quad processor 3.6 ghz, 8 gig ram and videocard gt 430.

    Installed all drivers i got and everything ran smoothly; Then after 15 minutes during a game of League of Legends (Which i was acing if I may add) I got a blue screen and my PC rebooted

    He reboots, i see the windows loading logo, the screen turns black and I get a blue screen saying "attempt to reset display driver failed" and I can't get into windows.
    I try safe mode, and it works, remove the videocard driver and i get into normal windows again.
    I install the latest nvidia drivers.
    -> Same Blue screen at startup

    I remove the drivers and install the older drivers from a cd that i got with the card.
    -> same Blue screen at start up
    WIndows 7 ultimate x64 freshly REinstalled, all drivers added, latest nvidia drivers
    -> same Blue screen at start up
    Different screen, cable, slot i plug my cable into
    -> same Blue screen at start up
    These 3 files are responsible for the crash according to the .dmp file
    Everything works normally when I use my nvidia geforce 9800 gt instead of the gt 430.
    Seeing as this is brand new and has run smoothly i don't think it's the problem. do any of you guys know the *bleep* is going on?
