    A few weeks ago i upgraded my old gtx 560ti to a gtx 680 due to it being slightly more powerful.
    But ever since i've done this i can't seem to play any games at all without my computer showing the bsod with the error "Video_scheduler_internal_error"
    I dont know what to do.
    Setup if you need to know
    Intel Core i5 2500k Stock clock 3.3ghz
    EVGA Gtx 680 Stock
    8gb DDR3
    Corsair VS650
    Corsair SSD
    WD 1tb

    The Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30 GHz processor uses 95W.

    The GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphic card uses 170W.

    The GeForce GTX 680 graphic card uses 195W.

    I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but the problem may be with that Corsair "CS" series power supply.
    It's designed for basic builds and not for the demands of gaming.

    Be patient and wait for one of the experts here to chime in and give you some advice.

    Please tell me you uninstalled the GTX 560 TI drivers, shut the PC down, installed the new card, and then installed its drivers?
    They're completely different families of NVidia graphics chips!
    I don't do much gaming (I just make them work properly); but, saved games may be buggy, too.

    In addition to what was said in post #3, you didn't advise which Windows version (7, 8.1, 10) is running in your computer.

    I didn't, i just installed the new gpu straight after taking the old one out! However i did a fresh install of windows anyway, whether this makes a difference or not?

    The very first thing I see is a corsair VS pw supply. There are NOT intended for any type of gaming or other stressful endeavor; they are for a basic system ONLY ie onchip video, running office, etc.
    Next I do not see your motherboard listed. Post the exact mb you are using. Next did you check for win10 support at the support page for your board?

    How to properly install a video card;
    1 Old card still installed, go to the relevant support site ie nvidia or amd and download the latest driver for your card. Do not use the driver that comes on the support disk; it is almost always out of date.
    2 Uninstall ALL software for the old card ie driver, any monitoring software, any suite, etc. Do not reboot; just tell it later.
    3 Now shutdown and pull your old card. Install the new card. Be sure it is fully seated in the slot. Connect pw cables as required.
    4 Pw ON and cancel any found new hardware wiz. Install the driver you downloaded in step #1
    5 Reboot when prompted.

    Done.

    You said "did a fresh install of windows anyway". Did you install all the mother board chipset and other drivers? What is your motherboard?
