Okay, I am having an issue where I just bought a new Powercolor Radeon HD 7850 2 GB and when I install it into my system (Replacing my old HD 4850) everything is okay with the Windows default display drivers, the computer works fine with no issues.

But when I install the AMD video drivers at new instances of W7 reinstalls, 13.6B2,13.4, 13.1, 12.10, I keep getting BSOD's with various stop errors ranging from 1A, 3B, 50, 24 and the likes with 3B being the most common.

Also note that my onboard video with legacy 13.1 drivers, it works okay too. No I do not have my 4850, I gave that to my girlfriend.

Of course the filesystem that is always claimed to cause the issue is ntfs.sys or ntfskrnl.sys, but we all know that everything interacts with those two filesystems so they can't be the issue, yes I've done CHKDSK. Bear in mind that my system did not bsod until I installed my new video card AND the new drivers.

I don't know what's going on. I'm so close to giving up on this. I tried a different HDD, used Raid 0, no Raid 0, Drives in IDE mode, AHCI mode; each instance done when reinstalling Windows 7.

I don't believe it can be my ram as the computer has always been okay before my new purchase.

Do I have a faulty video card? Is my 500W PCP Cooling PSU not enough for my setup?

Bad connections? I've tried reseating my video card many times, or a bad pci-e slot?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
