AMD apu 3870k brand new build, fresh install, video driver crashes every 10 seconds

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, my brother in law just took delivery today of an amd A8-3870k apu, and an Asrock A75 extreme 6 motherboard, both brand new from newegg, he put the machine together, and after installing windows, during the updating process, and now after it's all done updating, it crashes every ten seconds, says the video driver stopped working, and has recovered. He went to amd and installed the recommended driver for his apu from them, same with the drivers from asrock website, any ideas? bear in mind before you all hit us with ....use driver sweeper to get rid of it and re-install, it's only had one install, ever, and it failed on the first try.

Was it having any problems prior to installing the updates to Windows 7? Found topic about this error at support.amd.com -besides software, the list of possible causes include memory, hard drive, power supply, motherboard and cpu. Should start working through those to verify that they are good.

[SOLVED] What he didn't tell me was when he first powered the pc on, he oc'd the video core on the cpu to 900mhz, even before installing windows, and the thing was just unstable
