My boyfriends computer is going haywire. It's gotten so bad he can't even open a webpage. A few months ago he was having issues with his graphics card, the fan wasn't running when he would play games and I believe the card was over heating and causing the card to crash. So we ordered a new graphics card and power supply(since the the new card required more power then the power supply the computer came with). I was very hesitant to install the power supply as I had never done it before, so over thanksgiving his sister, who works in IT came over and installed it for him. The first day he installed the card it crashed a few times but then it worked fine until the last week or 2, it's slowly been getting worse. He plays minecraft and it has been crashing quite a bit. Yesterday was by far the worst tho. Firefox repeatedly crashed and he couldn't even play minecraft. I decided that maybe the drivers on the card needed to be updated so I did so. Since I updated the drivers the screen is becoming very pixelated when ever he runs anything, such as firefox or minecraft. It comes up with an error code "Display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered AMDKMDAP" That messages just keeps popping up so fast it's hard to read. Since his computer is practically useless right now it's going to be hard to run tests on it or anything, but I can use my flash drive and download from mine and try to install it on his. This is his computerhttp://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-M9400F-Desktop-Processor/dp/B001FW5DIG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
Hopefully it has all the system info you need!
This is the new PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703026
And this is the new graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131374
Please let me know what other info you need and I will do my best to get it, it's just hard with the graphics card crashing all the time!
ETA:I forgot to mention that start up has also been INSANELY slow since I updated the driver. I'm attempting to rollback the driver to before I updated the driver, but he was having issues even before that, it just seemed to get worse after the update.
ETA again: Nope rolling back the driver did not help, took some pics with my phone to better show the issue.
