Windows 7: Display Driver amdkmdap

Display Driver amdkmdap

So, after hours of googling, months of hardware swaps, and millions of braincells lost from bashing my head repeatedly against a wall, I've decided to just start posting and asking for help.

The "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." error message is logged in event viewer every time my HD 5770 reaches a temp of ~56 degrees Celsius, immediately after a screen freeze and then black screen.

Here is a list of parts of I have replaced in an attempt to determine whether or not it was a hardware issue:

Mobo - Swapped an ECS for an Asus
Video Card - Swapped my 5770 for a brand new 5760 from a different manufacturer
RAM - RMA'd the OCZ and get a new set
CPU - Tried a 955 Deneb Phenom II my buddy had
Hard Drive - Used a Caviar Black instead of my A-Data SSD
PSU - Tried my brothers 550 watt PSU

Another hardware related test: I threw every component except my CPU and RAM into an older PC (old mobo not DDR3 or AM3), these included:
Radeon 5770
Sata solid state drive (with os)
Power supply

And I never once experienced this problem.

My current setup is:
AMD 965 BE Phenom 2X4
ASUS M4A89TD ATX AMD Motherboard
OCZ Obsidian Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) Model OCZ3OB1600LV6GK RAM
ADATA S596 Turbo AS596TB-64GM-C Hard Drive
HP585D RETAIL 585W ATX12V Power Supply
HIS H577FK1GD Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) Video Card


I have also done the following software/os/driver stuff:
Safe mode driver sweeper reinstall of everything
reformat between any hardware change
operating system
memtest86
registry cleaners
bios flash


Do you guys need any other information? Any help whatsoever is appreciated. I've dumped so much money into this system it isn't even funny, and I would like to see if there is some other solution than continually throwing money at the problem and buying different ram.
