Hello Everyone whose trying to help, whats happened to my computer is that I installed a new windows update and it completely fell apart. That means blue screen of death, freezing and extreme lag. I did update my driver some days before the windows update. I couldn't find the problem so I restored my computer, but the problem is still here, so I downloaded the driver I had before and the blue screen of death and the lagg did go away for some time (1 day), but then it continued when I played games after a while.

BSOD is usually hardware related, so could be a coincidence that it started playing up after an update.
Check that all your cards/memory/cables are seated/plugged in correctly to start with.

i have seen on a number of occasions where after updates users experience BSOD, and in all cases it was hardware related, this was because windows scans the hardware for changes etc like you do when you add a new card or something similar detects a fault and starts causing the BSOD.

so like xpd i would recommend checking the hardware.

What update? - what driver? 

You might find the simplest (though most destructive thing) would be to do a fresh reinstall of windows.
Do you have the install Disks etc?
