Hello Anbub1s,

Your BSOD indeed references your Video drivers

BugCheck A, {ffffffffffffffff, 2, 0, fffff80002e94d76}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmdag.sys

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arg1: ffffffffffffffff, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002e94d76, address which referenced memory
Around the time of your BSOD, there is activity with Panda Anti-Virus

If the above doesn't help, try reverting back to 13.1 as you said.

It won't hurt to run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes or upon receiving any errors. If you receive any errors your memory or memory controller is bad.

The problem is you only have one crash dump so its hard to get a good indication of what is really going on with one dump.

Is your motherboard up to date with all the latest BIOS/Drivers?
Motherboards - M2N-X - ASUS

Do you have another open slot for your Video card? Or just make sure its securely connected to the motherboard?
