Bluescreening computer needs new GPU driver but can't stay alive long enough to install.

GPU: GTX 960
CPU: AMD A8-5500
MB: MSI A68HM GRENADE
xfx TS 550 watt power supply
8gb ram

The computer is running 64 bit Windows 10 and crashes to bluescreen (WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR) whenever it's put under any load. This only occurs when the graphics card is being used/installed.

I have the newest Gameready driver (version 364.72) downloaded and ready to install, but it won't do so without the actual hardware installed, but if I start the install with the graphics card installed, it crashes.

How do I get this driver installed? I'm open to any and all ideas. At this point I feel like i'm just not seeing something right in front of my eyes.

  1. Boot in to safe mode.


    Getting there in Windows 10 is a bit trickier than before.

  2. Thank you for your timely response. :) I just tried installing the driver in safe mode and as it was scanning my computer, it gave me an error stating that it could not be installed in safe mode. somthing about requiring c++.
  3. Microsoft visual c++ redist. packagaes for Visual studio cannot be installed in safe mode.*
  4. I was finally able to get the driver installed, by choosing custom install and only installing the driver, but the problem is persisting. I'm still getting WHEA_UCORRECTABLE_ERROR bluescreens. I don't know what to do now.
