Windows 7: Daily BSOD no matter what is running

16 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Daily BSOD no matter what is running

I quit using this PC about a year ago because everytime I turned it on it would end in BSOD. This happens whether any user applications are running or not. I'd really like to get it fixed because I miss this PC!

I have run memory and disk checks with no obvious problems identified.

Diagnostic File Attached.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Thank You KoolKat77!!

Updating the driver was an adventure. AMD Catalyst Control Center tried to load all kinds of stuff. Got BSOD in middle of install. Had to go to system restore point. Eventually got ATI driver updated and ran driver sweeper.

Now almost 24 hours without BSOD. Keeping fingers crossed!

Thank you for identifying the driver issue.

Uh Oh! Another BSOD 3 days after updating ATI display driver and cleaning leftover files with Display Driver Uninstaller.

Any advice on whether this is a new issue or if I somehow didn't get the above changes done correctly?
