Hello. I have a small problem here. I figured out that my Drivers are a bit outdated so I decided to download Driver Booster to scan for outdated drivers and saw that some of them were outdated, clicked Install and after this I got a bsod.

Please note there is no such thing as outdated drivers. The ONLY reason to replace a driver is if the new driver adds certain functionality you need. One of the main causes of problems on forums such as this are drivers being replaced for no reason. Additionally, you should NEVER use any 3rd party driver software. They only cause problems.


If I were you I'd look for a restore point with a date prior to your replacing the drivers.
