Any other ambiguous questions or is there something specific you need help with? – Not Kyle stop stalking me Dec 21 '11 at 20:20

Yes, a graphics driver can cause a low level crash on a PC. Drivers run inside the kernel, which means that if a driver fails, it will cause a BSOD or other kernel crash.
