I have installed a new Audigy 2 Gamer, I have reinstalled it 3 times already, and Sometimes I get a random reboot, sometimes it won't even get to log on screen and reboot itself again, when I send an error report it says the problem was causes by a bad graphics driver, how can I fix this, I have tried reinstalling the drivers and nothing worked.

I took it out put it back in and now it makes a wierd noise but it is working, usually the VPU recover message comes up saying a driver isn't working and that i need to restart, usually the screen is like ripped apart and lines everywhere.
