Is also a good idea to run a hardware test,


Download and install the new version of Driver Sweeper.


Download the most recent software\driver for your ati
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

Uninstall ati software\driver,restart in safe mode,run driver sweeper,choose only AMD-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.


Install the new ati software\driver,restart.

Update
DirectX


Read carefully the instructions and run
NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT post here the results.

Run
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.

Did you followed all the steps in my first reply? NO

I analyzed again the new minidumps and the amd software\driver is not updated.

Code:
atikmdag.sys        07421000    fffff880`07eac000  06-Dec-11 4:52:23 πμ
I cant help you if you dont follow my advices.


And of course the crash point to dxgmms1.sys.


So,please,


Download and install the new version of
Driver Sweeper.


Download the most recent software\driver for your ati
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

Uninstall ati software\driver,restart in safe mode,run driver sweeper,choose only AMD-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.


Install the new ati software\driver,restart.

During test\stress
monitor your GPU temperatures. If you see artifacts, or the temperature of your GPU exceeds 80C, stop the test.

Run

Ok,then,the first day follow all these steps,


Download and install the new version of Driver Sweeper.


Download the most recent software\driver for your ati

During test\stress
monitor your GPU temperatures. If you see artifacts, or the temperature of your GPU exceeds 80C, stop the test.


The second day wait for the power to come back and immediately run
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
For 4 hours and 50 minutes,this is enough for 2-3-4 passes? Well little is better from nothing.
Just have in mind to check for errors,i added for you an attachment for example.
In this example you can see passes 7 errors 0.
