I had similar trouble ,my card was damaged,

Sony / Vgc-rb34g
December 12, 2010 at 06:56:54
Specs: Microsoft Windows 7, 3.20GHz
The fan on the power suply went and the board over heated .I let the shop replace the vidio card and put in a whisper 500.It was an up grade,I was able to install microsoft windows 7 after a memory package was also added.I love Microsoft Windows 7.I am spending time watching the tube,and do not miss XP Media edition.It is a bit of a change ,first timers will find it easy,transfering from the old system is a bit more of a challenge.
The question,why was the error message directing me to change drivers I went through a ton of driver up grades only to go back and uninstall,Driver Shack was not able to resolve the problem,my system was old and needed to be changed.

And?

What is the purpose of this post?
Are you asking for help?

Bulging / Leaking capacitors mean the motherboard will eventually die.

"The question,why was the error message directing me to change drivers

Never let someone else choose drivers for you, do it yourself and make sure you do it correctly. On a computer from a major manufacturer, go to their website look for Support>Downloads>Drivers enter or look for your model AND your Operating System and choose the correct driver from there. For a system built by you or someone else (including a small manufacturer or store), get the manufacturers, the model numbers, and the version numbers off each board and card, and go to their individual websites and do the same. Nothing less will guaranty your system will run at it's best.

You have a board with significant damage to it, If you replaced it before you loaded Windows 7, then you would have been able to choose the best board for your needs. Now that Windows 7 is loaded, you will need to replace it with the same model if you want to easily access Windows 7 again without doing a repair of Windows 7 or reloading and/or calling them to reactivate it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
This site is about helping people, lets keep it that way.

The OP edit his post and added the question later.
The answer still stands. Bad motherboard, change it.
