unstable overclock or poorly installed drivers could cause a bsod.

yes they can cause BSODS, so can unstable overclocks on the CPU, and unstable OC on the GPU so yes

While I've never had a BSOD from overclocking a video card I don't see why you couldn't get one. Usually my screen just locks up or I get graphical freakouts.

Yes, it is possible. Freezing/artifacts/sound loops/crashes are more common, but a BSOD is possible as well. Typically the BSOD would list the name of your gfx driver as being what caused the crash in these scenarios.

Yea it's very possible, I use to get them a lot when I had power issues with my cards, not enough power and under load would blue screen. Unstable clocks could cause this also but like brettjv said artifacts and other things are more common. So put your card on stock clocks and see if you still get them.

guys ati cards when overclocked dont BSOD the driver just stops working i should say. So its either he has a old driver that had these BSOD problems or something else

Like when id stress test or game with unstable overclock it would just lock up. id load task manager and force exit out of the game/stress test and then im back at windows.

If you have updated your flash player recently, try removing it and doing a re-install. The new flash player offloads some of the flash video processing to the GPU, which was giving me a crap ton of GSOD. The latest 10.1.53 was the version giving me errors, I'm back to an earlier version and I am fine now.
