The .sys is a driver issue. Do you have the latest GPU driver installed?
I downloaded the latest driver and started to get blue screens and hearing beeps Frequently. Hope descriptions help but I’m lost at what to do next appreciate all the help thank you

To what did you apply thermal compound; processor, video cooler, chipset what?
Next post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact processor, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.
This utility will help with most [however not all] of your parts. Run this and post the output here along with the exact pw supply and exact ram;

I applied thermal paste on the graphics card because I though that would solve it but the problem kept being there. I put a small amount but kept reapplying many times because I didn’t want to screw it up but didn’t improve performance I kept getting the same BOSD

It appears you have some type of big box system. Post the exact brand and model#
The beep code is a problem of one type or another. Do the following;
1 System OFF and side cover OFF, remove the pw cord from the rear of the pw supply
2 Press the ON button 2~3 times. This will remove any residual charge from the pw supply capacitors
3 Remove ALL ram and blow out the slots with a can of air. Reinstall ram and be sure it is fully seated in the slot
4 Remove the video card and do the same thing ie blow out the slot and reinstall
5 Reseat ie remove and replace both atx and aux/cpu pw connectors
6 Clear cmos with the clear jumper/pins
7 Now replace the pw cord and attempt to pw ON. See if the system will POST now. If it does, great. If not, you are going to have to start swapping parts ie pw supply, motherboard, ram, etc until you find the failed part

That would indicate a bad GPU. It could be any number of things related to the GPU. I would make sure it's correctly and fully seated and any external power cables (PCIe) are connected.

What brand is your GPU....make/model.....Gigabyte, Asus?

Can I use a air pressure to blow out from An angle?

To answer your question, yes you can use an air compressor however you need a VERY small nozzle on the blow gun. Use of even a moderately sized nozzle will damage parts ie you will break something.

FWIW I use my air compressor to blow out systems however the nozzle I use is .064.

Unless you have something like the above, get a can of air.

I have blown air carefully into the dust out but am still getting BSOD But my suspicion is that I need to delete the old gpu driver installed and leave the newer version alone
