    Hi,

    I'm running a 64er, Errors come up occasionally if a driver is not on 64-bit, or if its conflicting. I wanna know if the driver I installed for my video card is a 64-bit one. Cuz im still getting thrown errors messages at my face. Also, when I installed the driver, i specifically installed from a file in the cd that said Winx64

    I think you need to be specific about what exact hardware you have, the version and patch level of Windows, specifically what drivers you're talking about, and the exact errors you get.

    About the problem I have:

    Every 1 out of around 12 times I shut down, I recive this blue screen. This blue screen tells me to disable the hardware (doesn't specify which, but mentions for the hardware that has a driver that is corrupt, or a 32-bit driver) I started to remember that this started to happen soon after I installed my video card. So, I was sort of lost from then on. I did accept some help from another member, and I followed his directions and installed the 64 bit driver for the Video card. But, thats exactly what I did in the first place, install the 64-bit driver from the 64bit file on the CD that was included. I just want to know if the files I reinstalled for the drivers are 64bit, so I know that the blue screen is gone for good.

    I'm guessing that you have a driver that's not functioning properly, most likely simply a buggy driver, or bad hardware. If it really weren't a 64 bit driver, the crash would happen every time at the same place.
