BSOD related to display drivers (?)

Hey,
Ive been having a lot of crashes (mostly freezes and display problems while playing games - no problems at all while playing Worms: Armageddon though as this one doesnt use DirectX afaik) as nicely described here and sometimes after freeze BSOD popped up so here i am as i still believe its related to software. Today ive accidentaly restarted PC while BSOD was creating minidump and decided to create a thread over here so maybe its possible for troubleshooting.

Greetings.

Try this
Driver leftover uninstall:Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling (AMD Display) Then:

1st check with your mobo website for the drivers, and then here
Update graphics drivers:
AMD :AMD Driver Autodetect
As well you may want to run this : Graphics: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark (Do the above Graphics test only with the latest drivers, and then Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; should be less then 10 minutes. If you don't see any crazy glitches or distortion on the screen, The test most likely passed. Take note if the Temperature gets too high, or you see Visual artifact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia to stop the test.)

It finds some fresh 12.10 version driver that i cant download (getting error) nor its not on official AMD website. Then ive started to dig, found it on unofficial sites such as Guru3d and turns out this one doesnt support HD 6770. Im getting latest 12.9 beta directly from AMD then, but im pretty sure ive already tried this one.

Ive already did Furmark stresstest on an older driver and temps got stable at 87C without artifacts. Will try again on latest driver.

Okay so after 2 weeks without crash ive got again. Not that i had no problems at all, because i had "Display driver has stopped working" errors randomly, just without actual crashes / total freezes. Note: Before today's BSOD happened, ive changed maximum supported resolution for my screen for 1600x1200 (documented max reso for my monitor) from 1920x1200 in CCC - worth a mention.
