Windows 7: BSOD After AMD Driver Crashes and Recovers

BSOD After AMD Driver Crashes and Recovers


My computer will have a BSOD randomly while I am browsing on the internet, maybe while I'm on Facebook. The screen will freeze and then turn black. Then It will restore and it will tell me my AMD Driver has stopped working and successfully recovered. The computer will work for 10 seconds or so after and then crash to a BSOD. I had a failing hard drive a couple months ago and have switched it out with a WD 750 GB Black HDD. The new one is working fine but I am not sure if it may have anything to do with it. I have also done a chkdsk and a sfc scan. I usually get this BSOD randomly and I feel like it happens while I am on Facebook. I put my laptop on sleep a lot and keep the Facebook website open as one of my tabs on Chrome so maybe a memory issue?

My computer just crashed again while I was watching a youtube video. I paused the video and put the computer to sleep. I then used my computer and everything was fine until I started watching the video from where it left off. The computer then gave me the AMD driver has stopped working and has recovered message again and then crashed about 15 seconds after it recovered to the BSOD. I get this message from microsoft when I reboot:

The dump is blaming your ATI graphics driver, try finding a new driver from your laptop's vendor site or ATI then uninstall the old one and install the new one without the Catalyst control center and see how you get on.
