Hello Atma2.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

In the mean time, update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Atma12, configure minidump as I suggested. If your minidump folder is empty, wait upto the next BSOD.

In between, dont run any disk cleaner program at all.
