Within a few mins of booting up, the screen goes black for about 15 seconds and then comes up with this tooltip error in the corner saying "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered."

 

I am then met with the following BSOD very shortly after:

I can't follow any of the posting instructions because there's not enough time before it crashes again. Does anyone know why this BSOD is happening?

 

My GPU drivers are definitely up-to-date.

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

Do you have another video card that you can try?

Have you checked inside the case to be sure that the cooling for the video card is working (be careful and don't touch anything inside the case while it's plugged in).  Should you need to go into the case, ensure that it's unplugged from the wall and that you are grounded before you touch anything inside the case.

 

If you can get into Safe Mode, open up Device Manager and uninstall the AMD display adapter (if it asks, also remove the driver software) and then reboot and see if it goes into normal mode then.

Please start on these troubleshooting suggestions (as you are able):  http://www.sysnative.com/forums/bsod-kernel-dump-analysis-debugging-information/35-video-tdr-timeout-0x116-0x117.html#post29532
Also, please monitor your temps with this free utility:  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Let us know what you are able to do and what you can't do.

When I boot into safe mode, the computer is freezing within a few minutes so I can't move the mouse and the keyboard buttons do nothing, So, I still can't execute any of the steps...

 

I don't have another video card to try. Could the video card just be dead? Isn't that strange if it still boots up fine at first?

 

I had checked the temperature with HW monitor on startup already. It is within very normal temperatures of about 35 C consistently up until the point it crashes.

My first guess would be that there are problems with the video card.

But a guess isn't enough to warrant the purchase of a new card.

OTOH - if you don't have a card, try purchasing one from a shop that will allow you to return it for a full refund.  That way you can try it without any financial risk.

The GPU I had in the computer before this broke about three months ago. Putting a new card in fixed it up right away, but now I guess this is the same problem. Luckily, this card isn ow under warranty and I can replace it for free. I worry the new one will just fail again eventually too though. Is it possible that something else in the computer is causing graphics card failures? Or possibly a certain game/program?

If graphics cards keep failing, you'd have to wonder why this is.

I doubt that the programs could break it - but running it overclocked or letting it overheat could cause a failure.

I checked the temperatures constantly and they never went very high. I didn't overclock either of them either. Hmm...

Check over in the Internal Hardware forums - they'll have more experience with this than I do.

Good luck!
