Windows 7: BSOD whenever I start a fullscreen game.

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000000

This only happens whenever I start a fullscreen game. I have no problems at all when I play anything in windowed mode. I've tested Half-Life, STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Dead Rising 2, and they all cause a BSOD when in fullscreen mode.

I'll attach my .dmp files to this post.

I use Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
