BSOD Error while attempting to start BF3 (probably Grpahics Card)

Hi there,
i used to play BF3 on my laptop without any problems. But later on i installed new hard drive (because my old hard drive went corrupt) and new windows 7 64bit OS . Now as soon as my game attempts to start it gives some DirectX error which i cant see because the computer gets hanged and BSOD Dump comes along every time. Please help me in this case. Here is the info i was able to collect for this dump file.

you were right about the display driver, first thing to do is make sure it is up-to-date.

My driver is up-to-date but i dont know why it is still happening ? I can run COD MW2 and GTA San Andreas on good settings on my graphics card but is there some sort of fix for this ?
