Please see:
Windows 7 - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box.
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Many people are having issues with the latest Catalyst, 10.12. See this thread for issues. It may be advisable to install one of the previous Catalyst versions x64 x86.

Be sure to run Driver Sweeper in safe mode to clear Catalyst remnants before installing your "new" Catalyst drivers.

Also be aware that Catalyst v11.1 is due next week.
