Windows 7: Random BSOD crashes - grapics problems?

Random BSOD crashes - grapics problems?

Hi, just had a new work PC but I keep getting random blue screens. It mentions an ati .sys file and I tried in installing and re installing the driver but it didn't seem to help.
Anyway, I have attached a zip with the BSOD info, would greatly appreciate some help.
Cheers Dave.

Yes, graphics problem.

Uninstall the installed display driver using DDU. Then install the CCC 14.4 WHQL only.

When done, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of teh PSU that is installed in your Optiplex 990. Is it 240 watts?

EDIT: Well, it seems that RADEON X600 PRO graphics chip is nicely old and it may not support the latest drivers. I am not a radeon user, I am not very sure about it.

If 14.4 WHQL does not work for you, try AMD Driver Autodetect and see which driver it takes. Let us know it, also let us know the resulting situation after installing it.
