Alright, so...

Was just playing RAGE. Got into the sewers and killin baddies, etc, etc....then BOOM. BSOD. And after I reboot, I have 5 unsolved Windows error messages. All video hardware related.

Problem Reporting:

Problem: Video Hardware Error
Files that describe it:
WD...numbers...
sysdata.xml
WERInternalMetaData.xml

There are five of these, all state "Video Hardware Error". My GPU is fairly new, I just built this computer (see sig) a few months ago...I've also cleaned it out once or twice. And right now my GPU temp is 40...usually it's 30...

Definitely gotta delete them SYS32 to re-sync the calibration files for the flop

Of the top of my head it could be either:
1. A driver issue (most likely).
2. A faulty GPU.
3. Possibly a PSU issue.

I just installed Linux Mint on a different partition and installed a driver on there for it. Would that mess up the driver for Windows?

The GPU has also been fine up until now.

Is there a way I can determine if it's the PSU?

GPU's staying at a constant 40...I don't like this one bit.

I did a clean reinstall of the driver and the temps are normal again.
