It's worth a shot, but make sure you back up the .sys file as well as anything else that is changed. Vista and 7 are considered to be a similar OS to Vista so it shouldn't really matter.

I might also suggest at this point running a Repair Install. It should fix your current version and Windows 7 but preserve your data, programs, user accounts etc. Usually when there's so many different errors referenced a repair install or even clean install is worth running.

As hardware was also referenced as a likely cause I would recommend doing the following:
Stress test your CPU using Intel Burn Test.
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Test your hardware using Prime95. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat. Let it run for up to 2 hours or until errors have been found.

Im currently in the process of running the repair install, and decided to skip the .sys file replacement as that is no longer an issue with the amd installer since their 11.0 version was released.

I stopped in to note that I ran the setup as instructed, and popped up itunes and the amd software as incompatible. I stopped the setup and fixed itunes, then went to amd. While uninstalling, the screen always turns off and on. This time when it came back on, the screen went crazy but the computer itself seemed to be running normally. The screen didn't have artifacts here and there, it was all over the place covering the entire screen.

I plan on continuing with the repair but if you could shed some light on this if you've seen it before I would appreciate it.

Just got finished installing all windows updates/rebooting till they stopped coming up, along with the newest amd drivers. Will be back if it continues to crash.

The dump is still pointing to ntkrnlmp.exe, yet another system driver.

Go ahead with the aforementioned stress test and report back with the results.

Can you try performing a system restore to before you got this latest BSOD (but after the repair install)?

Check for a BIOS update, you still have a version from 2010.

Sorry for the lack of update, classes have me much busier than my summer job did. I ran the prime95 stress test (already had this on my system) and temps only got as far as 62c, which is a safe spot for my cpu.

I checked asus website for the bios update and the only one more current than what I have adds support for newer cpus (mine's been supported prior to this).

I also received two bsods since my last post, and while it's a page_fault error again, it didn't reference ati drivers this time. I'm going to run memtest a 3rd time because it has a x00000050 bug check code (correct me if I'm wrong in thinking it points to memory).
