For several years now I've had some trouble off & on with my Radeon HD 6450 1GB Graphics Card. Part of me still suspects the Drivers since there were two instances where I went over a year without a BSOD but then they returned once every couple months via different driver versions. I know this isn't the BSOD category of BC & I'm not asking for help with that part of my problem here. What I'm wondering is if my Motherboard's integrated graphics by Nvidia might be conflicting with my discrete AMD card. It's an ASUS M4N68T-M-V2 with NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a chipset/integrated graphics. I've run DDU utility several times before & never once has it detected any Nvidia Drivers before or after removing AMD's. The only reason why I'm still suspicious is because of several programs & services showing up in my Control Panel & Task Manager. Since I don't see a way to upload screenshots of what I'm seeing I'll describe as best possible below along with the rest of my system specs.
1: Within my Windows Control Panel a Nvidia Control Panel shows but upon clicking I'm given a Windows error message stating. Current Ethernet Driver doesn't support "NVIDIA ForceWare Network Access Manager". Please remove "NVIDIA ForceWare Network Acces Manager" first from Windows Control panel, then reinstall NVIDIA Ethernet driver and "NVIDIA ForceWare network Access Manager" to fix this problem. Does this only apply to my Ethernet Driver & should I leave it alone or remove it?
2: Additionally, within my Windows Programs & Features there are 3 different Nvidia listings. NVIDIA Drivers, NVIDIA ForceWare Network Access Manager & NVIDIA PhysX. Do I need any of these or can I uninstall them & if so which in particular if not all?
Finally, within my Windows Services there's ForceWare IP Service & ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM). Also via my Task Manager I can see nSvcAppFlt.exe & nSvcIp.exe are both running. So I know at least a portion of the NVIDIA software on my PC is in fact active. Whether any of that should be or not I don't know but am hoping someone here can help me determine that & remove whichever of them aren't necessary.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
AV/Firewall: Microsoft Security Essentials & Malwarebytes (scanner only).
CPU: AMD Athlon X2 260 3.2GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
HDD: Hitachi HDS721010CLA SCSI
PSU: TurboLink ATX-TL 500W-BK 12V
AMD GPU Drivers: The latest Crimson Beta Legacy, I've tried the last WHQL before & those didn't improve stability either even when installed without Catalyst.
