Windows 7: BSOD When returning from sleep mode.

BSOD When returning from sleep mode.

I've included the Minidump file.

Useful info:

I have gotten BSOD many times before that really seemed to be a busted memory block. I suspect this because it only happened when I would click a link to open a pic or video sometimes. That's when it caches to memory, so it makes sense that randomly I would try to access that block and it would BSOD, so I bought 8gb of RAM and upgraded my video card. Info in my profile is up to date and current. I thought the BSOD would end, but here I am 2 days later and $500 lighter and it's still happening.

Any ideas for someone who's run out of ideas?

EDIT: It's not every time I return from sleep, it happens at all sorts of unexpected time, never under heavy strain.

All the recent BSODs are with ATI display driver.
Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff880110e32ac, fffff880092f3a90, 0}

Probably caused by : atikmdag.sys ( atikmdag+b12ac )

And your GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760.

That means no more BSOD after changing the GPU.

Is it ok?

I had another BSOD after I installed the video card. I installed it two days ago and it happened yesterday morning when I brought it back from sleep.

I want to answer your question correctly but I'm not sure what you mean by "Is it ok?".

As per the updated data, the BSODs were caused by AMD display driver.
