reboots when im not looking!

Hello!
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64
- the original installed OS on the system? Windows 7
- an OEM or full retail version? Full retail

- What is the age of system (hardware)? Few months
- What is the age of OS installation? few weeks


I recently installed a fresh image of win7 x64 on a freshly formatted harddrive of mine after needing to RMA my primary harddrive.
For a little bit of history, my primary started to fail, so went to return it, in place i used a new harddrive, and i seem to get bsods errors. after trying this current hard drive im getting the same errors.

The problem occurs when leave my computer, Sometimes i would be playing a game, installing a program then go get a drink or something of the sort and come back to my computer being restarted and windows trying to send an error report to microsoft.
I've tried reinstalling my video card drivers but it seemingly did not help.

I've only noticed these errors when i installed the new harddrives. Any suggestions? Hopefully this zip is sufficient, and Thanks in advance!

Dumps blame atikmdag.sys, your ATI display drivers

- Boot into safe mode with networking
- Uninstall the ATI drivers including Catalyst Control Center
- Use driver sweeper to remove leftover ATI display driver files Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
- Install the latest drivers ATI Radeon
- Reboot into normal mode

Hello, welcome!

The dumps seem to point to a video error, which has nothing to do with a hard drive issue. That's not completely surprising, though. What if the PSU is underpowered? What is the make/model of your PSU?

There are two older drivers running, both of which have been known to cause BSODs in the past. Very doubtful this is the cause, but it can't hurt to update anyway. Links to the right.
Code:
netr28x.sys  Wed Feb 25 22:02:09 2009 (49A60631) - RALINK SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
Rt64win7.sys Thu Feb 26 04:04:13 2009 (49A65B0D) - Realtek

Yowan posted first; I typed up a reply and then left without posting it. Rather than deleting it, I figured two replies could not hurt.

Again, a video error. Could you have bumped the graphics card while installing the new drive? Try removing the card and installing it again.

Do you have another card you can try? Perhaps borrow one from a friend.
