BSOD ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe

Hi - I am experiencing random BSOD which seemed to have started with AMD Catalyst software. After running WhoCrashed and researching forums, I deleted the driver and software, and installed just the driver. Seems to fix the PNP error, but still getting the Driver Power State Failure.

Latest failure was a ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe error. Not sure if related to the Catalyst issue. Latest WhoCrashed below. Dump files attached. Thanks in advance for assistance!

It looks like your BSOD is being caused by your video card driver:
Code:
kd> !irp fffffa8007615a00
Irp is active with 3 stacks 2 is current (= 0xfffffa8007615b18)

Looking at the driver's time stamp we can see that it should probably be updated:

Code:
kd> lmvm atikmpag
