lots of BSOD, one problem to the next

Hello, I have been experiencing a lot of BSOD over the past 2 weeks. My old video card fried itself, and since installing the new one after about a week it has been problem after problem. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve the issue, from reseating the video card to uninstalling and then reinstalling different versions of the video driver. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

already has been removed, did that in week 1 of debugging the issue, yet it still persists, can happen randomly, and always happens while running video games, even older ones such as knights of the old republic

Sorry, I guess I did not post enough information, I've only been running on a few hours of sleep a night so I guess that could be the culprit.

So I have the latest driver, does not work. I believe this all started because the old video card had been overclocked(I did not order this on the PC from IBUYPOWER but apparantly they did it anyways). So when that fried and I installed the new video card, I did not reset the overclocking and that cause several crashes followed by the screen on startup that said the previous attempt at overclocking has failed(or something close to that). I reset the bios and that problem is now gone. The adaware driver problem I fixed awhile ago as well, and then I kept getting dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmm1s.sys and now the last one was acdm64a.sys(or something close to that my notes are at home and I am at work I will post that this afternoon as needed). I have reseated the video card several times, as well as the RAM. I have tested all RAM and each stick works fine. I have fixed it enough so that I can run most applications and browsing without any bsods, however I still get them while gaming. Sometimes after the BSOD, when I power on the computer, everything turns on and everything starts running except the HDD. Could this be a HDD error? Or could it possibly be PWS related? I was hoping it was just software related so I do not have to spend anymore money.

Any insight would be fantastic. Thanks again in advance and sorry for the lack of information in the first post.

Could you specify, also timewise, exactly what sequence you followed? have you been able to set OC back to default?
What were the settings when this dump was created? etc...

I fixed the overclocking issue about 2 or 3 days ago. So the most recent dumps of the atdcm64a.sys should be after that. I just stumbled upon that issue and reset it to defaults.

So first was the old video card failure. I didnt do much with the PC until the new card arrived, and then I uninstalled the old video card drivers, installed the new card, and then ran the driver installation cd. Then I was gettign various BSODs still, even if I just left the PC on overnight without running anything, I thought it might be overheating but I found that to not be the case. now it seems to mostly be the video drivers that are causing problems, I have tried the CD driver version and the latest driver from the amd website, neither of which solves the problem.

Im starting to think it may be hardware related which is a huge dissapointment. Hopefully it is not though.

Any ideas on what else I can try?

If I understand correctly, you get random BSOD's, mostly, but not only when gaming?
If so, though it is a drag, please try running in Safe mode for a relatively long amount of time. Such that you would normally get another BSOD? If you don't... then it still looks like drivers.

It looks like it may just be gaming now. I left the computer on all last night and it had zero problems this morning. I will check when I get home from work and see if that is still the case. Its just hard to believe its hardware related when I get the BSOD in old and new games.

If it is the driver, and I have tried the CD version of the driver that came with the card and the latest driver as downloaded from amd, where do I turn to next?
