    Mobo cause of graphics driver crash??

      Hi folks,

       

      Here is the issue: when I turn on my PC, it boots up and goes to desktop. Within a minute, there is a malfunction. The screen becomes 'funky' and then eventually goes black for a matter of seconds. Then it comes back to 'funky' but with a window telling me that the display driver has crashed and rebooted. It will continue this pattern of crashing and rebooting until I turn off the PC, rendering it impossible to use.

       

      I tried booting in safe mode, uninstalling the graphics driver, rebooting in safe mode, then reinstalling the most recent graphics driver. This did not work. I also tried virus scanning, registry repair, both to no avail. I brought my PC to a repair shop. They told me a few days later that after various hardware combinations, they concluded that it was the motherboard causing this issue.

       

      This problem started after a friend of mine accidentally downloaded spyware on the PC, which I immediately removed. This PC is less than 2 years old, custom built by myself, specs below. It has worked better than perfectly before this issue. What is going on here?

       

      Someone help me? I need this PC up and running asap and I do not wish to go through the warranty process with intel.
