Roll back to the latest WHQL version of the driver, Beta drivers haven't been fully tested for bugs in their code.

Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

Release Date: November 18th 2013
Version: 13.10
This driver was causing memory alignment errors too.

Ok, I'll update that and report back a day or two with what's happened! Thanks again.

One BSOD just now, saw atikmdag on the screen again... files are attached. It was doing really well too!

Edit: 2nd one, different error code.

Debugging Analysis:

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff960000d60f7, fffff880021970f0, 0}

Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!W32pArgumentTable+2db )
Did you roll back the driver?

The Data Segment is used to store global and static variables declared by the programmer. Static variables are permanent variables which exist for the lifetime of the program like global variables, and therefore will maintain their value among function calls like passing parameters by reference. However, static variables are local to the the block they are declared in.

So, the add instruction is being used with a register containing the value of 0, and added to the value stored within the rax register which is used to store integer return values for function calls. The rax register doesn't appear to have a address, and therefore the system may have crashed due to a NULL pointer.

I would consider testing the card with a graphics card test, do have a onboard graphics card you could switch to? It will save running a graphics card test.

Run Furmark for a few hours (do not let the temperature exceed 90*C) - Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Ran Furmark, temps eventually leveled off at 80 C, but no artifacts that I could see. It did seem to skip a frame every second or two, but it was running at 30-31 fps so I don't know if that means anything.

Crashed just now, error code I haven't seen before, "unexpected_kernel_mode_trap"?

That is usually caused by stack overflow, again a driver problem. Hopefully there's a TSS on the stack, I can use to rebuild a 'good' stack trace.
