Windows 7: Random BSOD during heavy gaming

Random BSOD during heavy gaming

I get Random BSOD when i play games like Far Cry 4, H1Z1(Alpha so might be game bugs), Arma 3.
They can occour from anything between 5 min into playing and 8 hours into playing. It doesn't happend when on standby or low use activities like web-browsing or watching youtube/netflix.
I suspect it has something to do with my displaycard driver because i get a line in bluescreen with hint too atikmdag.sys! I tried removing ati catalyst drivers sompletely and reinstalling them, but it did not work.

your tool for creating a zip-file doesnt seem to work properly, because when i ran the cmd prompt it retrieved the dump files, but did not create a zip file of them before deleting the folder it created with all the dump files. So what i did was i made a zip file myself that contains all the files it should have but in a zip file(all the files that was in the folder on the desktop before he deletes it).

Hope it containes all the info you need to find out why I got BSOD

Hello and welcome Nemesis mate I am not that good at reading these dump files yet and I am going to have a stab as I see you have been viewed a few times now and I shall get the ball rolling .

For starters if you can get the machine running I would like to see some temps first up so run this and post the results back.

What I can see repeated a few times is hardware now what that hardware is could be anything but GPU's are a good first call place and so we need those temps.

BSOD at seemingly random times -- both during heavy load and at idle.
First off, I apologize for huge amount of minidump files you'll be seeing soon. This problem has been going on for well over a year, and I have been both incredibly lazy and too busy when getting around to fixing it. The BSODs I receive happen at seemingly random times. They can happen at: The...
