I'm running Windows 7 64-bit :
A few weeks ago I was doing normal stuff - web browsing, probably playing a game (SC2), and all of a sudden my screen starts turning this strange green color, then everything freezes. Earlier on in the month I had been having problems with my video card overheating so I assumed it was the same. I took it out, cleaned it up, and reseated it (fixed it the previous time). Worked fine for a bit, then what had been a weird green turned into purple streaks. Rebooted again, same problem, except then it progressed into giving me purple streaks during boot up. Either way, cleaning and reseating the card did nothing to fix the issue like it had the previous time - after a few reboots, I actually couldn't even get to the windows load screen and I figured it was time to replace the card, so I did that. (It was an old GeForce 9800GT)
Replaced the card with a Radeon 6850 HD. Windows boots up, gets past the load screen. Login goes fine. Then Blue Screened! I assumed it was drivers, or lack of drivers, as I had gone from an NVidia card to an AMD, but after going through reboot after reboot, and changing drivers, and deleting drivers, and uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, I kept getting the same thing. I could login to windows, but after about 20-30 seconds, I'd get blue screened.
I thought maybe it was still a driver issue (NVidia PhysX from my old card was still showing up in add/remove programs even after I deleted it) and I just got fed up, so I exchanged it and got a GTX 560 ti thinking maybe that would solve the driver problem. It did not.
After installing the GTX 560 ti, I get the same blue screen after the same amount of time (safe mode works fine). The windows error recovery window claims it has something to do with my version Symantec Endpoint Protection not being compatible with my version of Windows (I refused, and still kind of refuse, to believe that was the error, as I've had it for 2 years and never had any issue until I installed a new video card) and apparently you can't just uninstall SEP without making 23897498237 edits to your registry manually. I also just think that can't actually be the problem just because I've been running it without issue for so long on this machine, although srtspl64.sys does have something to do with Symantec according to Google.
I just tried making a Windows repair CD and running it but it did nothing to fix the problem so I'm out of ideas. I thought I'd post here before I resort to spending a year backing everything up and reformatting.
