Windows 7: "Attempt to reset display driver and recover from timeout" BSOD vaio

"Attempt to reset display driver and recover from timeout" BSOD vaio

I'm experiencing BSID issues apparently due to graphic card.

Computer:vaio vgn-fw51mf laptop
system : windows 7 home premium 64 service pack 1.
graphic card:

The issues started with computer bugs when Alt-tabbing, but one day I got a "Attempt to reset display driver and recover from timeout" bluescreen and since then the only way to make the computer run properly is to disable the graphic card driver from the control pannel.

The bluescreen does not allways appear, but the screen frequently goes black just right after the windows screen, or sometimes windows starts but I immediately get continuous “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” errors.

Initially I thought that it was a hard drive issue, as I've been running the computer several months with an almost full hard drive, but now that I freed some HD space (205 free GB out of 454 GB) the problem persist.

I tried to unistall my drivers and update them: any results. I hope not have a hardware issue!

Please, any help will be precious!
Thanks in advance

I attach the DM Log Collector file

0x116 bugcheck indicates an attempt to reset the display driver failed. It is caused 99% of the time by the graphics drivers.
I would update your graphics driver.

Hello,

I've had a hard time in order to install the drivers. At first, catalyst returned me some install package failure messages.

I've tried to delete all traces from the old drivers both manually and using driver fussion, but catalyst falied to install the package. I've finally opted to to a custom intall and I selected to install only the drivers, andthat seeme to work. If I check the device manager, it seems that I've manage to have the latest drivers installed for my graphic card (Mobility Radeon HD 4650). The information that I get is:

driver version: 8.970.100.1100
digital signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher
Driver Date: 29/04/2013
Driver Provider: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

In any case, after rebooting, the problem (and the blue screen) persisted. The only way of making the laptop run is to disable the installed driver.

Any ideas?

I've also foud what is maybe a clue: It seems that Windows fails to update two items: ATI drivers and Windows framework. I've attached the screenshots. Is it possible that this windows update problem is related to the BSOF problem?

Again, thank you for your help!

I've also uploaded a couple of photos of the black screen that frequently (yet not always) appears before the BSOD (that I've also uploaded). In case this may help...

Thank you

That definitely looks like a failing GPU. Hmm, is the laptop under warranty?

No, it is not
Thanks for your interest!

... any other hypothesis are appretiated (yet I'm starting to make myself to the idea of having lost my graphic card)
