Windows 7: BSOD caused by AMD Graphics Driver

I just recently did a clean install of Windows 7 so backing up data isn't too big of an issue at the moment.

Would there be another to rule my hard drive out? I don't have any other hard drives to switch it with.

Is the current state of the hard drive affecting how the graphics driver works?

Hi Zer,

Welcome to the 7forums

Although it looks like Laith is on the right path, I would like to add a few suggestions that may contribute to your problem.

Please make sure that Windows Update is up to date, install all updates available except for Windows 10 update.
Code:
Hotfix(s):                 20 Hotfix(s) Installed.
warning   Warning
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

You could use a system restore point to remove the drivers.

Please remove either of your memory sticks or replace them with a memory kit, running mixed memory can cause problems.

To answer your question about the HDD if it is possible to rule it out, I would suggest to run a benchmark and scan it for errors with a few other tools so we have a better insight.
Yes it is possible that the status of the HDD can affect the drivers.

Has your computer got slower and slower by time? Do applications crash frequently?

Did everything so far aside from the mem sticks. Will try to get a memory kit in the near future.

Disk Check showed no problems
Attached in this post are the screenshots of HDTunes
And I also updated my System Specs

Slowdowns occur, but only with tasks like watching a video on Youtube. Facebook, Googling and forums don't show slowdown but only because I assume I'm running on integrated graphics. I have not tried running games yet.

Looks like I forgot a thing, please upload the log of chkdsk for review

Scroll down to option 2 and upload the .txt file that is created with following the instructions in option 2 of the tutorial.

What does the graph mean?

And here's the chkdsk results

It shows how much data was read from your hard drive per second, unfortunately a part is very low what indicates a failing hard drive.

Chkdsk has made some corrections to the file system, but I doubt it is enough with the low transfer rate.

I recommend that you backup the data you do not want to loose and replace the drive.

So it's actually the hard drive that's causing the problems and not the drivers?
