Computer Crashes/Blue Screen when Playing games and Videos

I recently installed some new Ram and graphics card in my computer and after that my computer is crashing and going to the blue screen whenever I am playing video games or watching videos. Below is the error that is coming in blue screen:

Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00001000,0x0000000A,0x00000001,0xAA68408B

nvarm.sys - Address AA68408B
Base at AA67F000
Datestamp 70b3cf78

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You are getting nvram.sys that is a part of your graphics drivers. So, have you tried to install the drivers supplied with the video card that you have installed. You should not rely on Windows default drivers or use Windows update for drivers.

Thanks but I dont know anything about it. I think that this issue is occuring because the old driver from the old video card didn't get deleted properly. So it might be that the old driver is conflicting with the newer one. I have also tried updating my driver several times, but it never helps.

I have got a ATI Radeon 9550 series video card.

Have you tried to visit the AMD website to download and install the latest driver for your video card? You might have to remove all the old Ati software by going into Add and Remove program and then restart it and then install the latest ones.
