Windows 10: BSOD when Graphics Drivers installed Solved

    BSOD when Graphics Drivers installed

    My computer was frequently BSODing under Windows 7. I thought that my Windows install was bad, so I bought a new SSD hard drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 on it. Everything worked well until my video driver auto installed itself (Radeon HD 5870) and then Windos 10 started BSODing. I started up in safe mode, uninstalled the driver and blocked it from installing. Everything was running fine except I obviously wasn't running through my video card.

    I thought because the video card was old/dusty that maybe it was overheating and causing my problem, so I bought a new video card (Nvidia GTX 750). When I installed the new video card, the driver autoinstalled and the system BSODed. As soon as I uninstalled the driver, and blocked it from autoinstalling I was able to use the computer again without BSOD (typing this on the exact computer right now).

    I'm pretty convinced this is a hardware issue (same issue Win7 and Win10 with a fresh install) but I need help in understanding what is causing it. Motherboard/RAM/CPU/Power Supply?

    I've attached my log file below.

    So far I've seen at least the following BSODs:
    Pool corruption in file area
    IRQL not less or equal
    System Thread Exception Not Handled

    ...and I just noticed Windows reinstalled my graphics driver, which I thought I turned off...

    So I ran memtest86 last night and I've attached the results below. It doesn't look like it had any errors, but the first time I ran it it pil;ed up 30k errors and then halted due to an unknown CPU0 error. It reset before I could get a picture of that though. But then I ran it over night for 9 passes and it had no errors?

    If you have installed different GPUs on different operating systems and you're having the same problems, then I'd guess that the motherboard is trying to tell you something.

    That's what I'm guessing as well, but I'd like for someone to be able to point at something in my log files indicating that it's my motherboard before I go and buy a new one. Buying a new motherboard is going to end up in buying a processor/cooling fan/RAM so I want to be sure.

    I would really like an expert opinion before I spend $400 on a new motherboard/processor/RAM.

    I also ran memtest for 24 hours, made 19 passes (3 iterations) with no errors...

    Installed new Motherboard/Processor/RAM and BSOD's have gone away.
