Seems like a problem with ATI Graphics Drivers.

Have you tried updating it?

A driver unloaded without cancelling lookaside lists, DPCs, worker threads, etc.
The broken driver's name is displayed on the screen.
When possible, the guilty driver's name (Unicode string) is printed on
the bugcheck screen and saved in KiBugCheckDriver.
An attempt was made to access the driver at raised IRQL after it unloaded.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

Ok here are my computer specifications

I tried Installing the "ATI graphic Drivers" , the thing is when I go to Amd page and type the drivers for this serie it doesn't show any for Windows 7, It only shows for Xp and Vista .

So can the Windows not support the graphics and crash ?
