DisplayDrivers crash when playingGames. Relaunching them causes BSOD.

Hey! Been trying to play Payday 2 and Skyrim lately and the game windows just turn white which tell me my display drivers are crashing. When trying to relaunch a game it will appear for a few moments then I will recieve a bsod.

I am using a Sapphire R9 280 and my drivers are up to date.
My BSOD always has something about the file atikmpag.sys so I believe it might be a problem with that?

I have attached the file DM LOG has created for me and a screenshot of the BSOD. Please do ignore one of the BSODs has I have never encountered it again even with a heavy load on my computer or when using it for long hours. Please only focus on the Display Driver ones.

I will appreciate any help!

NOTE: I have only been trying to play Payday 2 and Skyrim, no other games have been tested.

Hello and welcome to Sevenforums!

Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
When you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again and you should be good to go! This is the guide for DDU: Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

I shall be doing this now thank you! What could have been causing this problem in the first place if you don't mind me asking? Should I also remove the AMD folder or keep it?

Yes, there are several reasons, could be that the latest update is causing it or more stuff.

Only just got around to reinstalling my drivers after letting DDU do it's thing. I'll do some tests now to see if I receive another BSOD.

Ok, my drivers crashed again. So I'm going to assume that when I try to open the game again I'll receive another BSOD.

EDIT: Yes I received another BSOD.
