Windows 7: BSOD when idle or after/during hibernation

BSOD when idle or after/during hibernation

I continue to experience BSODs on my new computer. Every component is new and experienced the same BSODs on my old computer as well.

I turned off hibernation thinking it was the problem, but leaving it idle also causes the same issue. Furthermore, if I leave it on hibernation, the monitor won't turn on after I wake up the computer or there is a BSOD error and reboots.

Attached is what I was told in the instructions to provide. I provided a dxdiag file to give you my system specs as well.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Any help would be appreciated in identifying and eliminating the problem!

atikmpag.sys may be the cause of your problem. It is a system driver related to ATI Radeon graphics cards. Update your graphics driver from the below link.
