Windows 7: BSOD at random times

Hmmm... I was leaning toward a bad video card until you booted off the on-board gpu and received a bsod. Just for the heck of it, if you uninstalled the drivers, ran cleansweep, pulled the card (with pc unplugged) and booted up with on-board gpu, do you still get bsods? Sorry - it's a process of elimination.

No BSOD, with removed Radeon and deleted radeon Drivers! But I will check it one more time!

Play with it for a day or so to make sure you do not get any bsods. If so, it would certainly point to the card or the driver. However, that is the newest driver. And your PSU is 800W, which is plenty of power. Did you just purchase this card? If so, see if you can return it as defective.

ANOTHER consideration is to make sure you have the latest bios from Asus.
M4A785T-M 2302 BIOS
That can sometimes resolve graphic issues, as they specifically mention "Fix the issue that ATI HD5850/5870 graphic card"

BIOS updated sucessfuly! Though it updated the same version, but maybe it somehow fixed my problem! Should I put my Radeon back, to see what happens? Because with my Radeon in or out, there were BSOD's, until I removed the drivers! Like WTF!? I think maybe I also could bring PC back to the shop, to let them ceck it, because my warranty wil expire in one month! But I also want to try to fix it at home, because here in Latvia, this warranty and ''customer is always right'' thing doesnt work like in the USA! There is a possibility that they will just kick me out and wont give a damn about my warranty

Viss Notiek Likumsakarigi.
If you are not getting BSODs now, you know it's either driver or card-related. I'd take it back to them and let them fix it. Or you could ask for another card.

Yeah, it really seems to be my garphics card fault! I will try one last thing, I will format all my HDD partitions, because I hadnt formated one of my HDD partitions(now I have a place where to store my important data), install WIN7 x64 and all the drivers! Maybe that partition had something to do with this! If thats not going to work Im taking my PC back to them tomorrow! But its kind of strange, that they checked my PC a month ago and replaced my motherboard, but dint see any faults in my Radeon!
Paldies!
