BSOD in various applications.

Hi everybody,

My monitor goes into power save mode while I am in the middle of different applications and somtimes right before it blacks out I get the BSOD. It has been happening more frequently recently. I have uploaded my minidumps and listed the main problem flag I get in the action center. Any insight anyone can give me about this issue would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

I am really a rookie when it comes to computer issues. But the main error codes i get inside the action center are:

You need to update your ATI Graphics Driver and see if the problem persists.

To perform a clean install of a driver, follow this tutorial:Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advance Mode while uninstalling which allows you to remove leftover registry:-
