I bought and installed Gears of Wars for the PC and while starting the game, it immediately prompted me to install new gfx drivers for my gpu, so I immediately downloaded and installed the new forceware 163.75, shortly after it prompted me to download new drivers for my AMD processor which it bundled the drivers with the game.

I installed the drivers. This drastically improved the speed of my computer during startup and booting. Unfortunately now I have a slight issue of an odd case where a my computer freezes, a blue screen flashes up for a split second than the computer crashes entirely.

There is also a case where my computer freezes and I have to manually shut it down.

Any idea what may be wrong?

Default Re: Computer issues :(

Did you uninstall the drivers first, then install the new drivers? If you did not, then that may be your problem.
