My HD6450 display driver is constantly crashing and I can't figure out why. This computer has a fresh install of Windows XP Home SP3. The crashes happen the most while playing the game Warframe, but sometimes I'll just be sitting on the desktop and the screen will go black for a second and then VPU recover kicks in and asks to send an error report.

I tried both catalyst 13.9 and 13.12 drivers and made sure to completely remove the old ones. I even got a new power supply, and new ram. Nothing I do seems to work, so the only thing I can think of is a bad video card or poor drivers. Any ideas?

System Specs:

Pentium 4 651 3.4ghz Cedar Mill

Mushkin Silverline 4gb DDR2 667mhz

HD6450 1GB GDDR3 video card

Antec 550W PSU(modular)

Windows XP Home Edition SP3

Anyone? I'm pretty sure I posted in the correct category?

Also if I try to send an error report with VPU recover the internet connection wizard comes up. How do I send the error report?

you might want to get a better performing video card, the HD 6450 is the bottom of the line

I'm quite aware its a low-end card, i've been building pcs for many years. This card runs all of my games just fine when its working. Theres no reason it should be bluescreening my system when just idling on the desktop. I ran heavy benchmarking tests on the card including a video card memory test and everything checked out ok, which is why I came here for advice. I can't afford a new card at the moment, and this card is brand new. It appears to be a driver/software issue or conflict possibly.

I recently did a refresh of Windows 8.1, might be an idea to clean up
