Windows 7: BSOD after random driver crashes.

BSOD after random driver crashes.

I have been having some computer crashes lately. They haven't been constant lately but it crashed again today and that motivated me to post this. I know that these crashes have to do with my graphics card. It happened to my computer with my old graphics card(fried) and it is happening about once time a month now. Basically what happens when it crashes is there is a notification on the windows task bar to the right saying something along the lines of "AMD display drivers has crashed". Any video I try to play will be messed up. Pixels are jacked up and sometimes the video goes completely green. If I see that notification about the display driver crashing, I have two choices. Play a video until my computer crashes or I can do stuff not related to gaming/videos and restart later.
My graphics card is a Diamond Radeon HD 6670.

Update your AMD display driver. Check optional Windows Update first after enabling to Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware.
Then check the AMD website for your model card, trying the latest driver without the software package.

If these fail work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.
