First off, I know very little about computers, that's why I'm here. I've been getting the BSOD and it has happened to me before and wrecked my pc and i had to get a new one. Now it happened to me twice, but nothing happened to my pc (thank god!) and it just happened to me right now... and I lowered my hard drive acceleration a long time ago when the first BSOD happened. This second one happened to me when i started up my Counterstrike-source a couple minutes ago. I didn't get to catch what the BSOD said so hopefully I can give you more info later. I have an:
-Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT with 256mb
-CPU 2.8 GHz and 1022MB RAM

But i have an important question, can I uninstall my driver for my video card and reinstall by starting my computer in Safe Mode with Networking so i can download the driver through the internet? (I don't have the disk)

(Sorry for the grammer and no knowledge of pcs.) PLEASE HELP :thumbsup: ASAP

Lol I followed this guys advice and I wanted to know if I can do it.

It depends on what's causing the BSOD. Each BSOD is unique - and each one can usually be caused by several different things. First I'd suggest the you locate the Blue Screen info so that we can have a look at what happening on your system.

This link describes some methods of finding Blue Screen errors: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

FWIW - the video looks to be well done, but it's for a virus removal - not for a driver (although there are similarities).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
