Well sort of. I have had a lot of Blue and Black Screens since I installed Win 7. One pattern that crashes it is opening any .jpg crashes or so it appears. Today I was listening to Internet Radio and while doing so I went to look at some pictures or .jpg files.
I can see the Thumbnails just fine, but whenever I double click to open CRASH, but i notice the Internet radio kept right on working just fine.

So is this a video driver problem? If so how do I check and troubleshoot?

Does this happen when you are NOT listening to radio?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Yes, it happens also when I switch or log off users, going into power save mode, and changing resolution. I know the OS has not crashed because I hear it responfing to key clicks, I just cannot see anything.

Is it possible I might have the vidio card plugged into the wrong PCI slot? (Nvidia 7900 GT/GTO) I have an ASRock P55 extreme MOBO and it has:

PCIE-2.0 x 16
PCI
PCIE 2.0 x 1

Yes I did. Nvidia has a newer driver, I loaded it, and it is even worse.
Old Driver 8.15.11.8593
Newest 8.17.11.9562

If the latest driver is worse at least it indicates your problem lies in the display card area - as yo suggest I would try the other PCI slots.
