Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.
After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts. Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.
Full instructions are in the tutorial.
I added the system specs, if they help.
It is a laptop computer, brand new (2months old).

Because I am slowly losing hope about this, I am thinking about reinstalling windows7 and if the problem persists, I could try Win8.

In my sig is a direct link to Driver Sweeper, download and install it.
Check here HP Support & Drivers | United States for the proper ATI/AMD graphics driver.

Install Driver Sweeper and check all the items related to ATI/AMD graphic and uninstall them. Install the driver you got from HP.

I already used Driver Sweeper and reinstalled the drivers from HP. The problem persists.

As a test and if your BIOS allows it, try disabling the ATI or Intel graphics one at a time to see if the BSODs persist.

The CCC is a bit buggy and has been seen to cause BSODs often. If you could live without it, I would try running that way.

I tried disabling in BIOS, no difference. Also, the CCC had to be installed, otherwise I couldn't reach Switchable graphics setting.

I once more tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling but with no luck. So I decided to format the laptop, installed Windows 8 and found out that I find it very usable. And the most important, no BSODs! =)

Thanks for any advices given, I hope anybody else finds this thread helpful!
