Right now I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium x86
Now my problem is that my video card driver is constantly crashing when I open IE9. It will either BSOD, blackscreen, or say "Driver has stopped responding but has successfully recovered." I have tested my graphics card by running 3D applications and nVidia demos on their site. I can run these games/programs for hours and not have a problem, but as soon as I open the internet, video driver crashes. When I am on the internet, videos glitch and the sound seems laggy. This also happens sometimes while playing DVD's, but only certain ones. How can I be running games and DX11 tests for hours, but have the card crash on the freaking internet... I have formatted my computer numerous times, tried like 20 different drivers, no luck. I have also recieved a bluescreen with something to do with a usb_driver_bug, but I have nothing in my USB's. I have a feeling that either my motherboard is failing, or there are traces of the rootkit/virus (is that even possible after formatting?)
I have tried using another graphics card, and tried the other slot. I tried re-seating the ram and using one stick at a time, so its not that either. Any ideas?
OS: Win 7 Home Premium x86 (Using 64 bit renders computer un-usable)
Motherboard: nVidia nForce 750i sli (EVGA)
Video Card: nVidia GeForce GTX 470 (PNY)
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy
PSU: Hush Puppy 680 watt (I've tested the voltages and they seem fine)
