Windows 7: BSOD atikmdag.sys and other errors during gaming

BSOD atikmdag.sys and other errors during gaming

Hi everyone,

After a long time of trying to fix this problem by myself, i turn to the pro's for help I've been having a lot of BSOD errors while playing games and occasionally during browsing / playing movies on my pc. The most common error messages include:

Atikmdag.sys error.

After some research i thought it might be the RAM, so i went to the pc shop and my RAM was still under warranty so they gave me a new one and the problem seemed to have gone for a short time, then it came back and has been haunting me ever since. It usually occurs during gaming: the pc eithers shows a BSOD, or the sound loops and the screen is full of blue/red/green lines or it just resets. I added some minidump files of the latest crashes, hope it helps to determine the problem.
Might it have something to do with my old BIOS version? 14.04 dated 28/05/2010?
Basicly i find it very hard to determine whether the problem is hard- or software related. I would be thankful if anyone could help me on the way to finally fix this dreaded troubles. I'll be glad to provide any more info if required. Grtz from Belgium.
