Windows 7: BSOD please help!

BSOD please help!

It has something to do with " atikmdag.sys " which i have no idea what it is , problems been occurring for about a month now. Didn't think it was that much of a big deal because the system would restore itself after the BSOD, however i'm in year 12 now and its really annoying me with the constant BSOD's due to the loss of my 2000 word assignment recently. I'm not a computer fanatic so i decided to ask the professionals, thanks in advance!
