ASRock Z77 Extreme6 - Video Driver Crash and Restart
Hey everyone, got a odd problem see if anyone can help...
Purchased and installed new ASRock Z77 Extreme6 MB, Intel i5 3570k, Partriot Xtreme DDR3-17000 and my old HD4870 GPU. Fresh install of Win7 64bit Ultimate, and the latest Catalysit 12.6 Drivers. System runs strong, all default settings, no overclock on CPU, Memory or GPU. When I go to load a video test, 3d Vantage10 (DirectX10) it freezes within 50frames, closes out and Windows saids my Video Driver Crashed and was restarted. I switched to onboard (off CPU) no errors. I removed and re-installed GPU, made sure its seated correctly, and reinstalled drivers for GPU and installed previous versions, and still have the same issue. Bios is 1.40. My computer build is on my pro, but here is the breakdown:

Updated Bios - P2.20 - still same issue while trying to game. However, enable Vertical Sync stops it from crashing. Could this be a GPU or due to the fact that Im able to run such high FPS that it freaks out my monitor and the driver saids the hell with this and throws in the towel??
Seems to be ok as long as I have Vertical Sync Enabled.... Anyone else with similar issues or ever run into this before ??
