    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    I do not. Also, the issue persisted after I replaced the card. It's certainly possible both cards have the same issue but I think it's fairly unlikely.

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    And that's why you don't tempt the good lord Murphy! Your fix was the cheapest and lasted the longest, but alas, the symptoms have returned.

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    I don't wish to tempt the good lord Murphy, but it seems like replacing the CMOS battery fixed it. $5 instead of $350, job damn well done sir.

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    Sorry, those are good questions! Crashes are happening at all different times. While gaming, while watching a single youtube video, with absolutely nothing going on, when waking from sleep. No apparent rhyme or reason. The PSU is an EVGA Supernova Gold Certified 650Watt No overclocking at...

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    Ugh. Happening again and more often now. The crashes alternate between "thread stuck in device driver", "video tdr failure", and just no error screen at all. Replaced the stock 4x2GB with a single 8GB stick last week to see if that was the problem. Thinking I just have to finish the job and...

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    Replaced my PSU and things have significantly improved. Had a device driver crash last night, but no OS level crashes or reboots, so hoping it was just a random occurrence. Thanks for the advice!

    "Thread stuck in device driver" crashes. New videocard, reinstalled Windows, still happening.

    Yes, I'm still on the stock PSU. Can't believe it hadn't occurred to me that might be the problem. I haven't tried with a lower-end card or the onboard video. I don't have another card available to try and the onboard is VGA only and I don't have a VGA cable. I'll start my new build a little...

    'Pardon Edward Snowden' Petition Reaches 100K Threshold

    OK, while I find a lot of what Obama does reprehensible and downright embarrassing, comparing him to Stalin is outright insane. Stalin is responsible for the deaths of nearly 20 million of his own citizens. While I have no doubt Obama has caused the deaths of innocent people through continuing...
