So I tried a new install of windows on a mining rig, as soon as I installed the video driver I got the blue screen. I can get into windows after repairs, but, I can't reset my computer. Every time I try it either freezes or gives me a blue screen. I tried 3 different drivers, I tried a full uninstall, no go. This is a brand new windows, new hard drive.

Any advice?

Bad memory? Incompatible motherboard? No idea.

Yeah I've had the rig working before, but this all started when I upgraded my drivers, so when I couldn't figure it out I did a new install for windows.

Downgrade drivers. It always worked for my 5850s back in the day.

AMD ?
Try this:
http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/catalyst-uninstall-utility.aspx
Then run Windows Update and install all the important updates.
If your mainboard needs a driver, install it.
Then install your graphics driver.
